Ummm...  I think that you need to do it.  I believe that you need
access to the install CD or media to relink the binaries.

Actually, Oracle 8.1.7 doesn't require the configuration of Net8 to
handle external procedure calls.  That version uses an Oracle 'shadow
process' to do the indexing.

If we don't use interMedia Text to search the CLOB files, I could
investigate writing a stored proc. to do the job.  It'd be a lot
better to use IMT as it has a lot of features other than just simple
searching, e.g., ranking results, grammatical stemming, etc.
