Did you read the Oracle8-HOWTO? It gives a few hints.
IIRC, most common problems seem to be an incorrect libc version, or
the wrong JDK (HOWTO mentions the version Oracle wants).
I tried installing Oracle 8 on my home machine once. After selecting the
options, the installation started and gave me an error after a couple
of hours of grinding disks. Probably removed some component it needed.
After that, I figured I didn't really want Oracle on my machine.
