    Don't use BT to host any Oracle DBs.

    No, just don't do it.

    Because BT is not a server distro and not meant to run Oracle.

    If you want to run it, you should stick to a certified OS.

    I prefer using CentOS(free RHEL Clone) within a Virtual Machine. You could also use Ubuntu if that's a linux flavor you prefer.

    This of course is assuming that this is for some type of testing or development purposes. If it's for a production instance I would recommend Oracle Unbreakable Linux, RHEL, or CentOS on x86 hardware (depending on your budget and what you can pay for support), or Solaris 10 Update 6 or higher on Sparc hardware. I'm a big fan of Oracle on Solaris using Sun's ZFS filesystem. Just make sure you configure ZFS caching so it doesn't take too much memory.

    ...but to answer your original question, I'm guessing you would install it like you install it on Ubuntu, not RHEL.
