OBIEE Data warehouse Architecture

Is it common to install the BI server and Database on different servers or both on the same.
I have installed OBIEE on OEL Version 5 update 2 64 bit and oralce's Retail Data Warehouse RDW on an other server OEL Version 5 update 2 64 bit.
There is a bug that requires a 32 bit client to be installed on the Database. The fix is to create a soft link between the OracleBi/server/Bin/ file on BI server to $ORACLE_HOME/client_32 lib32 libraries file. I don't see anywhere in the documentation of creating a softlink beween server so I am thinking maybe it's not possible to have the database and BI server on different servers.
