You will need only the Oracle client installation files. Install Net8 and sqlplus only.
Alternatively, you may wish to try toadfree.

However, this utilize 32 bit SQL*NET2 via TNS. Therefore, any Oracle database accessed through TOAD must have appropriate entries in the SQLNET2.INI and the TNSNAMES.ORA files. And of course to get the SQLNET or NET8 connectivity/drivers, you need to install from the Oracle "source"
