Oracle_net.msi contains the managed Oracle provider for .NET 1.0.
This standalone provider was also obsoleted by .NET 1.1 where it
became part of the framework. Mono is providing System.Data.OracleClient

I believe you should first try to find out how your app is actually
accessing databases. If you have the big picture then you can start
porting the app.
