I've done silent installation of Oracle 6.0.34: you should define ORACLE_HOME, something like:

define/system ORACLE_HOME dua0:[ORACLE.HOME] and ORACLE_SID

define/system ORACLE_SID ORCL

and run You should also edit ORACLE_HOME:[DBS]init_<sid>.ora by doing something like "eve ORACLE_HOME:[DBS]init_<sid>.ora"

Hopefully, that helps.
