Connecting to an Oracle database

I'm very green to databases. But, that's one reason I got FileMaker. Now, I'm just starting out. I've designed my layout. And, a number of my objects need to get data from our company Oracle database. I've downloaded and unzipped the Oracle client. I just put it into my home directory. I created all the links it told me to. I must say, it's incredibly geeky stuff. But, the last step, running sqlplus, doesn't work. It just tells me that sqlplus isn't a known command. So, how do I get sqlplus? I see on the web that there's a GUI version, and, I assume there's a command line version. Why wasn't it installed with this client I just put in?

 

Thanks
