We've talked about this before. It's a bit of a large undertaking, although not impossible. You'll have to start by switching out  includes/database.php.

1.5 is geared up to support multiple DB engines.  We are just waiting someone to have a go at writing a driver for another engine.

Hi Masterchief,

Can you send me the driver files so I can get some idea of the task in hand to produce some oracle drivers.

Thanks,

Steve

Joomla 1.0 has been out of support since 2009, and does not run against an Oracle database.
