What is the size of the partition on which you created the /u01 directory? Usually when Linux is installed there are multiple partitions, of different sizes. You should create the Oracle install directory on a partition that has enough space to hold the installation. To figure out what you have, run "df -h" on your system.

Your system has three partitions -- /boot (145 MB), / (root) (7.6 GB), and swap (2 GB). So, when you partitioned your disk, you did not use all the available space of your 40 GB image. You could expand the root logical volume to be larger (since you have extra space). However, what I would probably do is open up fdisk, create a new partition with the rest of the space (should be 30 GB or so), and edit /etc/fstab to mount it. The fdisk program can be a bit intimidating to use; just remember you can type "?" at its prompt to get help on all supported commands. Once you've created a new partition, check "fdisk -l" to make sure it's detected properly. Then add it to /etc/fstab, mounting it as /u01. You can read the manual page for fstab (man fstab) to understand the format of the /etc/fstab file.

Note: I'd highly recommend backing up your system before you do this. It's fairly easy to mess something up and render the system unbootable. Just be careful and have a backup, and you should be OK.

irfankundi786 use gparted
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
or
use the install dvd

but 5.1 is OLD
5.8 is also old but the current version of the old 5 series

but a question
why the two very OLD programs ?
the database is old and the operating system is old

WHY the very old "Release Candidate 2 for Oracle 10 "
a "Release Candidate" is a TESTING ONLY version to find bugs to be FIXED in the Official release

there ARE BUGS in the rc2 that ARE FIXED in the old official 10 database

Oracle DB 11g is the current

also "linux5.1" ?? is this Oracle's OWN rebuild of the OLD RHEL 5.1 ?
the current version of RHEL5 is RHEL5.8

5.8 is the current version not 5.1

if this is Oracle's "unbreakable Linux 5.1 " it is not free
you need a license

If this is RHEL5.1 it too is not free and you need a support contract also .

if this IS THE FREE CentOS 5.1
it is NOT supported
only CentOS5.8 is


as for partitioning and installing the not free Oracle database
there are install instructions on the Oracle web site

but for a rule of thumb
the bare min. for some partitions are
/boot 100 Meg
/ 9 gig
/home 5 gig
SWAP 2 gig

or
/boot 100Meg
/home about 5 to 10 gig
and / the rest of the drive


this might be a problem

you HAVE TO USE the tools in the vmware software
you can not use gparted

you never did inform us as to just what it is you are running
" linux 5.1" there is NO operating system called that

now there is a NOT free and old RHEL 5.1 ( 5.8 is the current in the 5 series )
there is CentOS 5.1 and that is UNSUPPORTED cent ONLY supports 5.8 in the old 5 series.
there is Scientific Linux 5.1 and that is UNSUPPORTED Scientific Linux ONLY supports 5.8 in the old 5 series.
there is Oracles own "Unbreakable Linux" 5.1 ( but again 5.8 is the current in the old 5 series )

and is this still the FULL of, NEVER to be fixed , bugs
"Release Candidate 2 for Oracle 10 " database

or
the official release of the old 10g database when the 11g is the current


without knowing just what is installed we can not help much in "sqlplus"
