setup.exe is for the windows installation, not linux. You will issue the following from the folder you extracted to.

Code:
./runInstaller
Here is a link to a guide on Oracle's Site

As you've been asked SEVERAL times, SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS.

First, an .exe file is for Windows, not Linux. Find the Linux installation instructions, and follow them. They're both on the CD, and on Oracle's website. Second, you're paying for support for both Oracle and RedHat Enterprise call them, and they can walk you through any problem you're having.

Hi,

definitely you should check Puschitz Website. There are brief descriptions on how to install Oracle on Linux.
You should read the whole installation documentation of Oracle on Linux. This can be found on Oracle website. Walk through the steps mentioned there. There are some things to do before running the installer.
