Allotting enough space for installation

I get a message that says "The Oracle home that you chose does not have enough disk space for the installation." I'm installing Oracle Workgroup Server SCO v7.1.5.2.0 on an SCO Open Server 5.0 -- I've verified the space allocated to the /u and most of my 4 Gig hard drive is allocated.

I have not installed Oracle Workgroup Server but there may be a parameter file that it uses to perform pre-installation checks. With Oracle database software installations (especially older versions) the space calculations were not always very accurate so it was sometimes necessary to modify a file called oraparam.ini. There may be a similar configuration file for Oracle Workgroup Server that you can also modify which would skip the pre-installation check for disk space. Only do this if you are certain that you have sufficient space.
