seeing as the Oracle 11 database is NOT free and you need buy a support contract
and
seeing as RHEL6 is also not free and you need to buy a support contract

and VMware is also not free - you had to buy it

you are paying three company's for the required support contracts

have you asked Oracle and / or Red Hat and VMware

Sorry, but we're not going to retype 'step-by-step' instructions for you. Since you're so 'determined', have you bothered to check Oracle's website or the documentation that comes with the Oracle software, that TELLS YOU how to install it??? From Oracle's website:
http://www.oracle.com/pls/db102/port...db?selected=11

Also, JohnVV made some good points...EVERYTHING you're using is commercial software, and if you're not paying for it, you really shouldn't be using it. You can load CentOS instead of RHEL, which is FREE, and nearly identical to RHEL. Oracle will run fine on it. If you're only learning Oracle, you can use it free, but please try to look up documentation first, before posting questions. Oracle installation guides are widely available through even a brief Google search.

Thought you didn't want to give up?

Right...so get the free version of VMware, the free CentOS operating system, and you're free to use Oracle for personal/learning purposes. If you've already got VMWare loaded, check before you trash your current installation, and make sure of what you're running. Again, just read the installation instructions that you've already GOT, and that you can find on Oracle's website. Nothing is stopping you from moving forward.
