Installing the Oracle Client _after_ you installed JDK1.4 can cause this problem. The oracle install also installs JDK1.1 and updates the Windows registry. There are two solutions. One is just to reinstall JDK1.4. The other (if you are brave) is to hack the registry. The need to change the value of the keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment from 1.1 to the correct value for 1.4. This will be either 1.4 or 1.4.0 depending on which you have installed. If you expand the key you will see which one you have installed. Remember if you do hack the registry to back it up first. One more thing, the key above is for NT, I don't have access to a Win98 machine so you'll need to check your own registry.
