How do I install programs such as Oracle 11g on fedora linux?
How do I maually install fedora 11?
How do I transfer files from Windows to Linux using VMware?
How do I connect multiple computers to linux server such as connecting windows Xp to Windows Server 2003.

Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Quite the jump in your taking there, congrats!

As you'll get to hear in the future quite often, Google is your best friend. Most users here like it a lot more when someone tried before posting instead of just 'requesting' a copy/paste guide.

Oracle comes with a pretty good and complete installer. You can read all about the installation and testing process for Linux on their site at this link.

Believe me, if you're new to Linux this is the path to follow. I would'nt advice a manual install but if you want to know how it works just open the runInstaller.sh script in your favorite editor and see what it does.

In Linux you can mount just about any filesystem you have hanging around, also Windows shared folders. That would be the easiest way to access them I believe. For more information on how to mount them, with the various options type
Code:
man mount
in a terminal or in the Google search (here's one link).

The last questions needs some clarification on your part. What exactly do you mean by 'connect multiple computers to linux server'? Are you referring to a domain setup like in Windows Active Directory? Or are you just referring to networking and being able to 'communicate' with a server, in order to mail, access files, print, etc...?

Kind regards,

Eric

Google "Oracle Linux Install" or read the instruction in the Oracle web site.

You can transfer file using many different file transfer servers such as ssh, ftp and samba; between vmware guests or regular computers.

You can connect XP computer to a Linux server with Samba.

@Above,

Start your own thread for your issues. This thread in no way is related to your issues.
And instead of compiling squid, pre built packages are available for most of the distributions. Use those. You seem to use CentOS, and squid is available in the repositories. Use yum to install. And if any other further questions, do not post here. Start new thread.

Thanks EricTRA for that detailed question. In my last question, I was refering to something similar to Active Directory and also be able to email and do all sort things as you would on Windows Server 2003 or 08. I know I am jumping ahead of myself here but my goal is to be able to set up a distributed database network. Do you have any other resources that can answer most of my questions and what book would you recommend based on the questions that I posted.
thanks

For something similar to Active directory for Linux, you can have an LDAP server for authentication and identity management.
If you are talking about joining Linux machines to active directory you can do that by using samba. For using Linux as domain controller as well you will need samba configuration.

Hello,

There are few things you cannot move from Windows to Linux. You ask about any books I'd advice, well the one 'book' I consult most is Google, believe me, it's a lot faster then buying and reading books. I've been a system administrator for a lot of time and still can count the books I bought on two hands. If you have a specific question then you can always post it here and you'll get a reply for sure. For instance if you're looking into the database thing you could start here. Are you really looking for the distributed database design or just into database replication? Because those are two different things.

Kind regards,

Eric

My goal is to become Oracle DBA and over the past years in school, have only been using windows to administer Oracle database until someone advice me that I need to use Oracle more on linux because that is what the market of today is looking for. I am looking to know everything that is there to know about administering database on Linux from front end to back end, be able to implement ASM or RAC on linux. Everything that I have done with oracle on windows, I want to take it onboard on linux. Yes, I want to learn about database replication on linux so that whatever Site A is looking at, Site B will have the same access. That is what I am after and I want to be able to the do all these using the command line instead of GUI as in windows.

I'm sure you'll get there. The beautiful thing is that it's a learning path that you can explore until you reach the very core of the thing, more in depth than with a Windoze OS.

Kind regards,

Eric

You could start here http://www.linuxtopia.org/index.html and search for Oracle.
Also, google 'oracle linux howto' brings up a lot of good links.
