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.

Oracle (the entire Sun products!!!) are really badly made. I mean, Sun keep trying to invent standard, instead of using existing standard (as result, none of their apps are intuitive and some things just don't make sense).
In Linux, setting *should* be in ~/.name_of_the_apps. So if your user is bob, setting for oracle should be in /home/bob/.oracle (or sometime in /etc/ since oracle is mostly server application).
But don't expect too much about it, I guess Sun put this somewhere else just to be "different".
is Oracle a sub-corporation of Sun? I tought it was. eeeeh maybe I'm damn wrong sorry if I am. Anyways, I tried Oracle linux once and I wasn't surprised, their installer is buggy, there is very low support and some standardisation problem.
As stated, config files should be in ~/.oracle (or similar location) but
don't be surprise if it is not.
Oracle is totally independent and worlds no 1 RDBMS. www.oracle.com
May be when you had touched oracle it was buggy but now they have improved a lot. Sun makes servers and they have their OS Sun Solaris.
yeah I know they make their own OS and build server (my friend own a Sparc with Solaris on it, very cool) but they also develop some "things". As example, sun made NFS, Java, Star Office... I dunno why I was thinking Oracle was owned by them, I suppose my brain got a bug here, LOL. They made some goods things, but they try to play Micro$oft, they develop their own standard and so don't follow existing standardisation, so I find most of their products... strange.
