Unhappy Oracle 8I install problem on Red Hat 7.1

I'm way-new to both Linux and Oracle.

Following instructions in the "Oracle 8i for Linux Starter Kit" book,
I think I created groups/oracle user ok and set environment variables in .bash_profile correctly (DISPLAY=localhost:0.0; export DISPLAY), but when I mount Oracle 8i cdrom, cd /mnt/cdrom and ./runInstaller from a shell xterm-launched from KDE, I see the following message:

"Initializing Java Virtual Machine from ../stage/Components/oracle.swd.jre/1.1.8/1/DataFiles/Expanded/linuxbin/jre. Please wait..."

Then nothing happens. Has anyone been down this road that might have an idea what's going wrong?
