<< This is my first time with Schedule D and I couldn't find the answer in FAQ. I bought a total of 95 shares of ORCL at five different times and sold all 95 at one time within one year. How do I go about entering this on Schedule D? >>

Since all the holding periods were short term, you can do it with one entry on line 1 of Schedule D. You show "various" as the purchase date. See the instructions for Schedule D.
