if you want better support of oracle go for any rpm based distro ..
Download oracle from the oracle's site and you will find installation guide along with it...

If you want a system dedicated to running the Oracle DB, you might want to get Oracle's own version of Linux; note however that you pay for support/updates.

Alternately, try Centos (a free version of RHEL)
