I installed oracle 8.1.7 on linux about a year ago.  I don't know
if 9i is any better (I suspect not).  I had to use ash for /bin/sh
and I had to have awk installed and it had to be /bin/awk.  Think
I used gawk but I can't remember now (I've slept since then).  The
install was via the java install tool oracle has but it calls other
stuff.  The computer I installed it on was a p5-133 with 128 Mb ram.
It didn't run too well.  The sample database took 96Mb memory.  I can
use sqlplus and such and it works ok as a client...
