extract the cpio archives in some directory
# cpio -idcmv < oracle_Disk1.cpio

you will most probably have disk1, disk2 and disk3, burn it. mount the first disk and run the runinstaller most probably /mnt/install/runinstaller.

my advice would be to find a howto and follow it since there are many preinstallation/postinstallation tasks you will need to do like set the environment variables, set system parameters etc.. best of luck.

you can also just run it locally, cpio idmv the images

cd /usr/ORACLE/Disk1
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19
./runInstaller

If running remotely export your DISPLAY and make sure DisallowTCP=false in gdm.conf on the machine you are installing on.

Note:- for learning purpose I am using my laptop and I have installed the below version of Fedora
[root@localhost /]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP Mon Oct 16 14:54:20 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I followed the steps given in ivan.kartik.sk/oracle/install_ora9_fedora.html

But for me the error is as follows. Can you please help me to resolve this.

[oracle@localhost disk1]$ ./runInstaller
bash: ./runInstaller: Permission denied

Have a look at http://www.puschitz.com/OracleOnLinux.shtml for some concise instructions on how to install Oracle products on Linux boxes - I've occasionally used these guides to assist with successfully installing Oracle database 9i and 10g on my employer's Linux servers.

Keep in mind, however, that there are lots of packages that are required to successfully install and run Oracle on Linux. A standard "Desktop" install of FC6 just won't have all the required packages. At installation link time, you'll be told about missing packages, or kernel parameter values that need to be adjusted, and you'll have to fix those, and start again...

Oracle certify Linux distros for Oracle product installation. FC6 is not a certified distro, but Red Hat's EL4 Advanced Server is (amongst others). But if you're prepared to go through the slow and painfull process of discovering missing packages, and installing them, and fixing kernel parameters, I can't see why you cannot eventually install Oracle 9i on FC6.

Good luck with this project - I'd be interested to hear how you go, and what you had to do to complete the installation.

To JonBL:
1. Of yourse if Oracle products will be used in production then certified distribution is required.
2. For learning purposes Fedora is enough and Oracle is working fine there.
3. RHEL is not public downloadable. There are clones but these clones aren't certified too.
4. Just FYI: Werner's site provides howtos also for Fedora and other uncetified Linux distributions for Oracle.
