Hi lennyli,

It seems that you unpacked the archive with no access attributes.
Or may be you kept the Oracle Distro on non-Linux (like fat32) partition?

Anyway, try to unpack it again wirh saving all the attribs onto a Linux partition (ext2, ext3, ReiserFS etc).

It should resolve your trouble.

I had the same issue. I believe the problem was in burning the cd. When I copied the release image to a flash drive I was able to run the installation. Unfortunately, the installation aborted when it saw I was running Suse 11, telling me only version 9 was supported. Version 9 won't install on my system because it doesn't recognize the SATA drives. I'm still looking for a good way to install Oracle 10R2 on Suse.
