RE: Oracle bI 2nd request

Hi Stan,
  you don't need anything extra to install Oracle 8i in Debian.  java comes
with oracle, you need no extra java packages.  If your not building a
production machine, 64MB would probably work, but I would not run X at the
same time, otherwise, go with 128MB.  Hope this helps
