CRT is used for Forms 2.3. ORATERM is used for Forms 3.0. Try specifying sqlforms30 -c 4410:4410 user/password - but first make sure your *PATH is set up correctly -

  ORAKITPATH Those usually are set to: $ORACLE_HOME/forms30/admin/resource

In the files $ORACLE_HOME/*/doc/* are files about things like the UTD or F12 model. :-)
