julian, you MUST (i.e. no options) have 512MB to install oracle - it is the installer that requires this. You can not install any part of oracle without 512MB of memory.
you can learn SQL with MySQL, Openoffice, or a good book fromt he bookstore

The best thing is to try to get Personal Oracle. You can get 9i. Get a book as well and practice. There is also ton of info on the web. Try searching and practicing through the examples. When you are ready, you can dive in.
