Invoke Oracle installer to remove the installed items.
Physically remove all the contents. clean up entries in oratab.
Start over.

UNINSTALL ORACLE 10G:
---------------------------
1. remove all database, by running $dbca

2. stop any oracle process running:
Database Control : $ORACLE_HOME/bin/emctl stop dbconsole
Oracle Net listener : $ORACLE_HOME/bin/lsnrctl stop
iSQL*Plus : $ORACLE_HOME/bin/isqlplusctl stop
Ultra Search : $ORACLE_HOME/bin/searchctl stop

3. Start Oracle Universal installer:

$ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin/runInstaller

4. In the Welcome window, click Deinstall Products.

5. In the Inventory screen, select the Oracle home and the products that you want to remove,
then click Remove.

Only for vmware workstation
----------------------------
I also give u important suggestion to take snapshot of your virtual machine in vmware workstation before you proceed to next step.
for example: after solaris installation ---> snapshot 1
after oracle installation ---> snapshot 2
Using snapshots if anything goes wrong then u can revert to the snapshot.
In you are case when oracle installation went wrong u can revert to snapshot 1 and again u can continue.
