Errors installing Oracle Application Server 10g

I am a newbie to Oracle 10g. I have a Fedora Core 6 on my laptop and I am trying to install Application Server 10g Release 3 (10.1.3.x) on my machine. I referred to this Oracle Base content to install Oracle, but all in vain. I am getting the following error when I try to do ./runInstaller:

{localhost.localdomain> ./runInstaller Starting Oracle Universal Installer...
Checking installer requirements...
Checking operating system version: must be redhat-Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3, redhat-Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4, redhat-Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3, redhat-Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 or SuSE-9
Failed <<<< Exiting Oracle Universal Installer, log for this session can be found at /tmp/OraInstall2007-04-12_08-14-21PM/installActions2007-04-12_08-14-21PM.log}

Please help me regarding this.

The OUI performs operating system checks prior to launching the Installer to determine whether basic requirements are met. In this case, it is checking to see which operating system is available. The only operating system supported and certified by Oracle for that release of Oracle Application Server must be one of the operating systems listed above. According to Oracle's Certification Matrix, the release of Application Server you are attempting to install is only certified and supported for SLES 9, RHEL 3, RHEL 4 or Oracle Enterprise Linux. You can modify the oraparam.ini file to ignore this requirement but I would not recommend this. You should install Oracle products only on certified and supported operating systems.
