thanks Niall

By looking at another 9i machine I saw that the shortcut used the launch.exe in the %ORACLE_HOME%\bin directory, but there was no .bat file to be found. In any case I just re-installed the dbca component from the 9i cd and now I can see it fine, I made a note to self to just blow away the oracle dir etc.. the next time I re-install and avoid a lot of little annoyances like this. I found that the emca would see my previous management server repository ok after I just re-created the service for it with oradim and applied the 9.2.0.6 patch, but I couldn't get it to work so I just had it create a new repository within the same db.

I was going to just go with 10g OEM after I had to re-install the OS, but from what little I have seen of it so far it looks like there is no other way to monitor all the databases from a single interface other than to download and install the entire grid-control!, but I'm still checking in to it on my SuSE machine with its new 10g install...
