Do you have a separate & complete Peoplesoft install, or are you trying to install the database as part of the Peoplesoft install ? If the latter, you should be following the Peoplesoft install instructions.

But then, the question is - Can app server, Peopletools and PIA running on Linux guest connect to DB server running on windows host without DB client installed on guest machine?
Yes, I have separate peoplesoft install.
Ok, Let me put it this way - I am trying to build peoplesoft architecture in such a way where the database server is running on a Windows Host but
other servers (Web server, app server ,batch server), Peopletools ,PIA will be installed on Linux guest.As said, it seems you have a "Peoplesoft" installation question, not for a Oracle Database Installation forum.
But then, the question is - Can app server, Peopletools and PIA running on Linux guest connect to DB server running on windows host without DB client installed on guest machine?Some sort of db connectivity software is needed, yes. In this case there may be need for both OCI and java database client software. For the former (OCI), and maybe latter if using thick jdbc, check out Instant Client.
