I did start again yesterday, I reinstalled Oracle from scratch and rebuild the database. No luck. When I try to just delete the database via the database configuration assistant, it fails because it can't log onto it's own utility (probably svrmgr30) to do the drop. So I'm stymied.

I don't think 8.0 can build databases with sqlplus. I'm pretty sure that "sqlplus /nolog" and "connect / as sysdba" started in 9i. I tried it in any event and still got the same error. In one of my blogs I read about the oranav and how you need it if you have an interchange in your network. I don't even know what that is.
