oracle client installation?

oracle newbie here..

i'm running mand8.2 and oracle 9i,(installation is straight forward)

me and my friends want a nice gui tool ..
tora looks like one we are looking for
however it says i need to have oracle client installation..

i remember i installed 'database' not client in install time.

do i have to install 'client'?
and then how can i install it? i have to run ./runinstaller again? (meaning i need Disk1/2/3
again --)

also i have related question or doubt about options that i gave during

listner doesn't run automatically when i startup oracle database?
as u can see ( changed to something) and
Service ""
which doesn't look right..
will this be a problem sometime? (well i don't know what listener is for)
if so, how can i correct this..

well, now my friends ssh to my comp and do sqlplus..
if i have 'tora' installed, they wouldn't need to ssh and directly connect to my oracle db?
thank you very much

the only client u have in oracle is SQL> _
that's all u can get. it's not SQL server or something.. so no fancy stuff, just a SQL prompt.
same as in Oracle in windows
