No connection to run Forms

I just loaded 6i Forms and I am running a 9i database on my home PC. I can not get a connection to run Forms. I keep getting the dreaded ORA-12154: TNS: Could not resolve service name error. I checked my services and my TNS listner is started. My user_name, password and database names are all correct.
Forms 6i and Oracle 9i run in different Oracle Home directories. While you may have modified TNSNAMES.ORA for your 9i database, your Forms software will need the TNSNAMES.ORA modified in its ORACLE_HOME/network/admin directory.
