For what?
If you are looking to learn Oracle, I would go with Oracle 11g on Ubuntu.
I suppose you have 32 bit versions and you need the Oracle 32 bit binaries.
Also check this article.
http://www.pythian.com/blogs/968/installing-oracle-11g-on-ubuntu-804-lts-hardy-heron
Installation will need some tweaks.
I switched to all Ubuntu/Mac X at work & home a while ago and it is been pretty consistent. If the purpose is just to learn Oracle, Ubuntu is not essential (save the time on hacking things) Smile

I have gone through the link you provided it is good. But as per the document, it is said that database setup should be copied to /home/oracle folder.

but when i try to copy the setup in that particular folder i can't copy. i can't login to system as root user. May i know what i have to do set the permissions for the folder /home/oracle/



The below are the commands i have used.

01 root@hardy:/bin# cd
02 root@hardy:~# pwd
/root
04 root@hardy:~# addgroup oinstall
Adding group `oinstall' (GID 1001) ...
Done.
07 root@hardy:~# addgroup dba
Adding group `dba' (GID 1002) ...
Done.
10 root@hardy:~# addgroup nobody
Adding group `nobody' (GID 1003) ...
Done.
13 root@hardy:~# usermod -g nobody nobody
14 root@hardy:~# useradd -g oinstall -G dba -p password -d /home/oracle -s /bin/bash oracle
15 root@hardy:~# passwd -l oracle
Password changed.
17 root@hardy:~# mkdir /home/oracle
18 root@hardy:~# chown -R oracle:dba /home/oracle
19 root@hardy:~# ln -s /usr/bin/awk /bin/awk
20 root@hardy:~# ln -s /usr/bin/rpm /bin/rpm
21 root@hardy:~# ln -s /usr/bin/basename /bin/basename
22 root@hardy:~# mkdir /etc/rc.d
23 root@hardy:~# for i in 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 S ; do ln -s /etc/rc$i.d /etc/rc.d/rc$i.d ; done
24 root@hardy:~# mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle
25 root@hardy:~# chown -R oracle:dba /u01

Post the error you got.
What do you mean by "cannot login as root"?.
Your posts show are are logged in as root.
