Cannot Direct Connect To Oracle SDE DB With 10

I have two workstations, one with 9.3.1 and the other with 10 Pre-Release.  The 9.3.1 can do a direct connect to our Oracle Database running SDE 9.3.1 on it just fine.  But when trying to direct connect on the other PC with 10, I get "Failed to connect to the specified server. Server library could not be loaded"...

Things I have tried:
- Installed Oracle Full Client (had lite)
- Created environment variables, ARCHOME, ARCGISHOME, ARCSDE
- Verified "C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\bin\gsrvrora10g100.dll" exists

Is there some other config file or registry value maybe not set right?  I wish I could have 9.3.1 installed simultaneously with 10 to see if it works in there...

Thanks a lot!!!
