Odd Question on a 2000 323ci

I recently had a minor problem where my oil light would flash yellow for about 5-10 seconds after I turned the key(this only seemed to happen when the engine was warm).

I checked my Oil level and it was fine. I read on a different forum that this was likely a Oil Pressure Sensor. On a trip of around 100 miles with the cruise control on, my check engine light came on.

I have a friend with a universal scanner and it came up as "FUEL CONTROL - BANK 2, SENSOR 1" which I believe to be an Oxygen Sensor?

If anyone knows which sensor or have any more information on the yellow light I would greatly appreciate it.

I dont believe this model has an EGR, but is the first Oxy sensor the Lambda?

Thanks, the service engine light hasn't came back since it was cleared, so im just going to change the oil pressure sensor and keep a careful eye on the performance.
Thanks for your time.
