[R] using DBI

can anybody provide a reference to a document on using DBI and what is needed to make it work?  

I try: drv=dbDriver("Oracle")  

and it complains about not finding a function. The DBI.pdf does not require anything else installed, but looking at the archive I discovered there is more stuff to be installed. This is on Solaris 5.10 with a full Oracle install, so all Oracle libs are available and sqlplus works.
I am trying to connect remotely to another Oracle instance.  

Thank you very much
