Sanity check: did you start the installer after setting all the appropriate environment variables and verifying that you have enough swap space?

Your environment should look something like this: (adjust for your own PATH etc.)

ORACLE_BASE=/opt/oracle/9idb
ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/9.0.1
ORACLE_SID=yoursid

TMPDIR=/tmp
tmpdir=/tmp
CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$ORACLE_HOME/jdbc/lib/classes12.zip:$ORACLE_HOME/JRE:$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/network/jlib PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH ORACLE_BASE ORACLE_HOME ORACLE_SID tmpdir TMPDIR CLASSPATH
