Oracle has an excellent class for Oracle Spatial. There is a tutorial database for the class, but I'm not sure whether it is available without taking the course. I think the 2 day course I took a few years ago was the beta version of the course and it was held in Nashua, NH.  

Before you start shoving data in, you'll need to figure out which co-ordinate system will work best for your purposes. The default covers a lot of cases, but many data sets will do better with one of the supplied alternates. (Don't use Mars unless you mean it.)

I have installed Oracle 10g and there is a manual the teachs INSERT, SELECT tables.

But it is not enough.

After insert it, what need I install in order to use the entered data into database.

Change database and compare result.
