There are two modules available for connecting to Oracle;

- cx_Oracle from Computronix, which can be found at 

- DCOracle2, which can be found at http://www.zope.org/Members/matt/dco2

Both of these will work with Python 2.3

If you are using Windows and don't have access to a C compiler then you 
will need a binary version of the module. Currently only cx_Oracle ships 
a binary for Python 2.3 and that may be your best bet.
