Inserting flat file text data into 9i

I want to insert a flat file text data into an Oracle9i database table, which has OS RedHat Linux Advance Server using UTL_FILE.FOPEN()function. I have done it in Window NT server but I unable to use it on Linux server. Please tell me how i can use UTL_FILE.FOPEN(). I don't want to use SQL Loader here.
First, you must make sure that the UTL_FILE_DIR parameter is set properly. The file you want to open must be in the directory quantified in the UTL_FILE_DIR parameter. Once that is set, you should be able to open the file and manipulate it as you desire.
