sqlplus giving error on linux

Currently Being Moderated
I am using RHEL5 and have just copied instant client from download section.
When I try to connect to sqlplus it gives me following error:

$ sqlplus
Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
SP2-0667: Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle software directory

I checked other thread posted here, but I have set ORACLE_HOME environment variable.
what would I be missing?

Thanks in advance for help!
