Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes, 9i and personal 9i are different versions. You have not listed your operating system. I am presuming it is some flavor of windows. The software you are installing needs to be the release for your particular operating environment, so double check the compatability of the software with your o/s. Presuming you have the right release of Oracle for your o/s, make sure you have the necessary privileges to install software on the platform. I would recommend getting an installation guide and double checking all system and pre-installation requirements. You can find documentation at http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/index.html

    Also, the installation files could be corrupt. If you downloaded the software, try downloading it again if you have already checked what Jcmdba mentioned.

    Ya, now i came across that problem, i tried it with a different set of cd-roms, and i am successful now! also i am a big fan of Linux, i can surprise my friends with an Oracle installed in my fedora 7, so kindly suggest a version of Oracle, that best suits Fedora 7 or Fedora 10. I ll be very thankful to you...

    For educational purposes, you could install Oracle Database 11g And here is an installation guide: Oracle Database 11g Installation On Fedora 7 (F7)
