Oracle9i on Debian

I am running a current Debian v2.3 on kernel v2.4.18 on a Compaq6400r. I cannot for the life of me get Oracle9i to install.

This is a minimal install - just waiting for oracle I just must be missing something. I have it nearly automated and have tried many different solutions - v2.2 and v2.3 with different kernels mostly. I would like to run v2.3 and the newest stable kernel - but whatever is best.

The documentation for the kernel changes from oracle are a little vauge to me. I am not big into altering the kernel - especially when the documentation isnt exacting. And since oracle doesnt have the filenames right and the define statments are in other files i am very leary.

The users and space are fine. The space can be optimized once i get over thus hump of actually getting this to install.

I have installed 815 and 817 before this is quite a different problem.

This is the dreaded stumbling block.
