Minal,
It depends on what you want to do. If Oracle is already set up and you want to run queries, use "sqlplus" at the command line to start a session with Oracle.

I downloaded Oracle 9i software for Redhat(Fedora) versions.
How will I install it on my machine(Fedora 3)?

Fedora is not a supported platform for Oracle.

Fortunately, Red Hat enterprise is, so what you do is run the Oracle Installer while temporarily marking your OS as being Red Hat Enterprise (via the /etc/redhat-release) file.

It's not a simple task, so I recommend you google for "Oracle install fedora". There's 1 or 2 very good step-by-step guides that even get you past the bugs in the Oracle 9 Linux installer.

Oracle 10 installs much cleaner, by the way.

Probably a hardware problem on your disk drive. If Oracle installed and ran OK, ignore it. If not, you might want to bring your OS up to date in case it has corrupted drivers and/or crack open the computer and see if the cables are all secure. Then, if Oracle still won't run, reinstall Oracle.

BTW, Oracle 9 takes somewhere between 5 and 10 GB to install unless you're good at deselecting options like the sample database. Make sure you have that much free disk space. This is another case where Oracle 10 is cleaner.

If you picked one of the better how-to's on installing Oracle on Fedora, there should have been a list of the RPM's you need to have installed before the Oracle installer will function properly.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
