hi i am trying to create new DB in oracle 10G , but while creating it i am getting the following error...

ORACLE- 12560:TNS: Protocol Adopter error...
i came to know there is need to create some listeners for in "tnsnames.ora" under ADMIN i tried to configure it but i am getting how to do it...
the contains that is already here in the "tnsnames.ora" file is as follows:

# tnsnames.ora Network Configuration File: D:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\network\admin\tnsnames.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

I am moving this to the oracle forum, where people should know much more about setting up an oracle database.
