Dabase link Oracle(UNIX) to MySQL(Linux)

I want to link an Oracle9i database running on UNIX to a MySQL database running on Linux. 2 different servers.
Linking 2 Oracle databases you just create a link and make sure the Listener is running.
Under MS Windows you can use the ODBC for Oracle and MySQL. I want to use the UNIX OS to do this.

How do you get MySQL(Linux) to let Oracle(Unix) know it is there so link records to get data from MySQL.
I would like to use Oracle's SQL in a UNIX.
Maybe it is the Listener on the Linux I need. Not sure.

Can you help?

Oracle refers to these products as "gateways". If you want to *internally* let Oracle get to MySQL (that is, the Oracle database itself can get to MySQL data, not necessarily just your application) - then you need to see if Oracle offers a gateway product/extension for MySQL.
