There are two that I know of and have used successfully;

cx_Oracle : http://www.computronix.com/utilities.shtml#Oracle
DCOracle2 : http://www.zope.org/Members/matt/dco2

cx_Oracle is more actively maintained (and there are a number of other 
Oracle utilities on that page) but both work well.

It's 9i by the way. Unless you've managed to get an early copy of 10g ;-)
