RE: Oracle installation

Remember that if you use Oracle Migrate from 7.x to 8.x, instead of export/import, you will get an icky performance hit the first time your data is hit. This is when the block-level changes will take place. So, after your migration is "complete", you will probably want to do FTSs on all tables before opening the DB up to The Masses. The changes will be taken care of for you if you use export/import.
