Sql Server 2000 Linked Server (oracle) problem

Complete frustration sets in.

I can connect to a remote oracle database through Sql Plus, through my development IDE, through everything EXCEPT a Sql Server linked server.  When I try to connect, it gives me this error:  OLE/DB Provider 'MSDAORA' IDBInitialize::Initialize returned....blah blah blah.

Anyone have any hints?

I did already visit MS' "how to troublshoot an Oracle linked server"  page.

Here's a hint - when asking for help, post the full error message, not just "blah blah blah".
