Angry Modify Kernel Parameters. Need Help!

In order to install Oracle 9i on Suse Linux 7.3, I have to modify kernel parameters to meet the requirement.

First I logged in as root user
then changed to the /proc/sys/kernel
cat sem
here is the output: 250 256000 32 1040

250 is the value of the SEMMSL parameter, 256000 is the value of SEMMNS parameter, 32 is the value of the SEMOPM parameter and 1040 is the value of SEMMNI parameter.

The parameter values required to run Oracle 9i for SEMOPM is 100. I did issue the pico command to modify this value but I could not change it.

pico sem

Please help. Thanks in advance.
