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.

I am thinking about to install Oracle Database software, but my hard disk space it`s very limited. I have a dual boot system with Windows XP and Fedora 8 and I created a /shared partition.
Please check my disk usage:
[Kryptos@localhost ~]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
6.6G 5.5G 849M 87% /
3.3G 235M 2.9G 8% /home
/dev/sda6 5.0G 75M 5.0G 2% /shared
/dev/sda2 99M 13M 82M 13% /boot
tmpfs 244M 256K 244M 1% /dev/shm
/dev/sr0 2.8G 2.8G 0 100% /media/O meu disco
/dev/sda1 21G 6.4G 14G 32% /media/disk
It would be nice if the Oracle software was available from windows and Linux. Is that possible? Can I install Oracle in the /shared partition?
Will Oracle database work for both operating Systems?
I know i need at least 1GB of RAM, but actually the scenario it`s like this:
[Kryptos@localhost ~]$ free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 486 467 18 0 9 112
-/+ buffers/cache: 345 141
Swap: 2000 76 1923
What will happen if I don`t upgrade RAM and ignore the recommendation?
Will Oracle database work?
I installed Oracle XE with less than 1 gig of memory but needed a 1 gig swap partition on the Linux install.
By the way.. can you show me your RAM capacity and swap size. Did you have any problem with this installing or later?
Why did you choose XE? I am thinking about to install 11g because it seems to be newest and very complete. Can you give an advice about my choice?
