Below is what MetaClink had to say about linking probs. It doesn't say "9.2", but it's worth a shot...

BTW, the "certification matrix" says: kernel 2.4.9, glibc 2.2.2-25

GL!

APPENDIX A - Solutions for the relinking problem seen with Oracle 9.0.1 on Red Hat 7.1.

      Option 1: (remove "-z defs" from genclntsh file) (Workaround)

  1. When you get errors from OUI installer, open a window, and cd to the Oracle Home  installation target location
  2. Set Oracle environment  ORACLE_HOME to this target directory.
  3. Use editor to modify $ORACLE_HOME/bin/genclntsh file, to remove -z defs? from it.
  4. Then run this script $ORACLE_HOME/bin/genclntsh to create Oracle libraries.
  5. Go back to OUI error window, and click on retry? bottom to continue.

      Option 2: (update the binutils)

      You have to follow these steps to solve the re-linking problem:
      1. Update the binutils-2.10.91.0.2-3 to binutils-2.10.91.0.4-1
      2. You can get the binutils patch at the following URL:
 

http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/kernel.org/pub/linux/devel/binutils/binutil s-2.10.91.0.4-1.i386.rpm

      3. Relink Oracle binaries.
