Unhappy Linux Hang When Installing ORACLE 9i


I try to install ORACLE 9i on Red Hat Linux 7.2. Followed all the instructions carefully but still FAILED. In fact, the system hangs! Even the attempt to Telnet from another would result in the windows being hang (although I can ping the server from remote machine). Why is it? I am new on Linux, but I thought Linux is more stable.

I have tried many the installation many times, with all different kind of combinations (even re-installed Linux a couple of times), but it did not work, whether it be ORACLE 9i R1 or R2. Is there anyone who can help me on this? I need help badly! But I can not find any valuable information on this at all.



My system Hardware:
CPU: Athelon 1.1 GHz,
Main Board: Spacewalker Shuttle AK12A
Memory: 1 GB ( 2 x 512 MB PC-133).
Swap Space: ( 2 GB )
Hard Disk: 60 GB ( with both Linux and Windows XP )

After rebooting the system I caught an error in the
/var/log/messages file:
<myserver> kernel: Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 2546e644.
printing eip: c0136646
.................


What is wrong? Is it because of Linux? or ORACLE? Or because compatibility issue between Red Hat 7.2 and ORACLE 9i? I wonder anybody had success story? This is very frustrating.

Any one can help?

Thank you both for the tips, but up to now it still does not work.
The OS is RedHat Linux 7.2. Both failed on 9iR1 and 9iR2. The system hang at various stages when installing 9iR2. When installing ORACLE 9iR1, the syntom is a little different. The JAVA GUI wind is blown away somewhere after you answered all the questions and installation started. After that, any attempt to change directories (or similar simple operations) will result in xterm windows hang. And eventually the whole system hang. I happen to capture some error message in the /var/opt/log/message file. I am not sure whether this flags some hardware problems or what:

I am so frustrated with my Linux experience. Everybody is saying that Linux is stable and optimal. I certainly do not see it. Well, I am not sure what else I can do now.

Oracle 9.2.0.1.0

Oracle 9.2.0.1.0 installs easily under MS Windows XP
and Solaris. Although Oracle has gone (internally) to Linux, their install is barely possible. I don't think that Oracle thinks about what they send out. as far as software or documentation.
