Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

nah... oracle is in the proprietary software market. they're the second biggest software company in the world, and they're not about to start supporting open-source platforms. without emulation, which would probably be extremely slow anyway, oracle won't work under linux. mysql is probably the best replacement for oracle.
Distribution: Debian, Red Hat, Slackware, Fedora, Ubuntu
Just a note: Oracle has been supported on Linux for quite some time now. I think MySQL is so popular for a few reasons. 1) It's free. 2) It's very easy to install and use. and 3) Because it is missing some of the high end ACID database features it is VERY fast.

i should have remembered that... there's been a few posts about the oracle universal installer on this site.
this is what i get for having all those episodes of "friends" taking up space on my cerebral cortex.
