"Here is a summary of how I installed Oracle 9i (9.0.1)
Database on Red Hat 7.1 (kernel 2.4.2-2) and on Red Hat 7.2 (kernel
2.4.7-10). For more information (kernel parameter tuning, etc.)
check the official Oracle documentation Oracle9i Database
Documentation for Linux.

has been no validation for Red Hat 7.2 yet."
