Tim, this document was unbelievably good. I'm new to Linux/Unix and this document has helped me get past that mind-block against non-windows Operating systems. Thanks so much!

Tim--I found this page that talks about including the Oracle RPMs during the install of Linux. May save time later on in regard to further configuring an Oracle software install.

Hi.

This requires you to have an Unbreakable Linux support contract, so it is not available for all people wanting to perform the installation, which is why I don;t use it in these articles.

If you have one, then buy all means use it. :)

Cheers

Hi.

Sounds like you have a dodgy disk. If this is a virtual disk, drop and recreate it.

Cheers

i afraid for my vital information.

Hi.

I wouldn't risk it. I only ever run a single OS on a box, then use Oracle VirtualBox to run virtual machines for every other OS I need.

Cheers
