If you have a linux ODBC manager, such as unixODBC, and you have a suitable 
Oracle ODBC driver for Linux (such as ...) then the native odbc32.dll should 
access that.

To trace any problems use:
export WINEDEBUG=odbc
wine myprog 2>odbc.log

Alternatively or in addition you can enable logging within the unixODBC or 
whichever you use.
