TOAD is actually a Qwest product (a really good one). You should install the Oracle client unless you're planning on using JDBC or similar to connect to the database. The client is a free download from Oracle but installation isn't 100% straight forward if you haven't done it before but it's easier than installing the full blown RDBMS.
