(I'm very sorry to hear that you accept such a position without appropriate knowledge and training.)

Same place as all other Oracle documentation -

Far, far better than it's predecessors 9.0.2 ad 9.0.3

Many. Too many to discuss without knowing your environment and target purpose. (Aside form Solaris.)

Make sure you install the Infrastructure well before the App Server - assuming you need Infrastructure for your environment.

Make sure you have enough servers to properly install everything.

Make sure you understand how to monitor memory & CPU utilization as well as swap/page situations.

Hope you have a Metalink account!

Take an App Server course at the very least. Oracle University has a few decent ones. Give us your location. If Canada, I might be able to help you ... although the next one I have scheduled is 9i and is not for a while, there might be enough demand for a special. (Decipher my personal email address at bottom.)

Metalink, Technet.
