Last I knew 8.0.x and 8.1.x could be downloaded from the Oracle
web site somewhere.

My understanding (but I could be wrong, so you'd best read the
licence!) is that Oracle for Linux is not free.  It is free to use
for development purposes, ie. writing applications that are going
to use the database.  If you want to use it in production then I
think you still need to pay the appropriate licence fee(s).
