Excelent guide; the only step missing is wich packages you need to install to meet Oracle installation requirements

I always list the necessary package in the Oracle installation articles, as these will be different depending on the Oracle software being installed.

Hi Tim,

Excellent and useful article. I always used similar sort of RHEL customization during installation.
Today, while installing fresh version of CentOS 5 for Oracle, I've decided to browse metalink, to see what does "oracle" says about it.
And I've found interesting Note:376183, that mentions following:
However, de-selecting any "default RPM" groupings or individual RPMs can result in failed RDBMS installation attempts, and as such, is not supported by Oracle Support Services.
