If you're struggling to configure the Oracle MA in FIM, there's an excellent guide to installing the Oracle client on a Windows server here.
I struggled even with this guide; I downloaded and merged both sets of driver files, created environment variables, and ran the ODBC_install app which flashed-up a dos box breifly, but gave no indication whether it had worked.
