Given the specification of your machine, you probably won't be doing anything that absolutely requires partitioning and can probably live without other Enterprise only features.
Standard Edition One looks like it may be suitable to me. You mentioned one application... is it a batch job, client server, or web app? How many total users? How many con-current users? It would be appropriate to verify with Oracle that your usage will fall within limits of Standard Edition One license. Also, Redhat Linux 9 isn't a certified operating system. Fine for development, but for production you need some certified os, because Oracle says so.
Marketing-wise Oracle recommends you get Redhat Enterprise. In practice Suse seems to actually be more co-opertaive in getting Oracle installed and working.
10g installs pretty easily on Red Hat Enterprise 3 though.
