To have a 'light weight' Oracle 9i installed

Ok I have to admit my company is cheap -- my computer does not even have enough space to fully intall Oracle 9i, which requires 10G free disk space. Since the company has its own oracle 9i server for our application developing, I can not test my SQL skills on it, plus I don't have the privilege. so I want to intall Oracle9i on my own machine. I have 2G free space on my D drive and just want to practice my SQL skills using the examples given in the OCA exam book for the sake of exam007. So can anyone give me a suggestion on how to partially install oracle9i that just have those default tables included?

You can download Personal Oracle or Oracle 9i lite. at www.oracle.com. Select the download icom at the top right of the screen.
Most of the disk space I thought was for the SGA, which you get to size yourself.
