You won't be able to connect until you or someone else has installed an
extension module like DCOracle so that your Python can talk to Oracle.

Go to www.python.org and look at the documentation under the db-sig (under
the SIGs link) about databases and Python.  (At one point, I thought that
there was a nice databases HOWTO, but I can't find it anymore.)  Then look
at the database modules link from the db-sig pages, and get DCOracle or
mxODBC (depending upon whether you want to work with ODBC).
