Installing 64-bit Oracle on a 32-bit OS

I tried to install Oracle9i (9.2) on a Linux platform. But after unzipping files I came to know that my OS is 32-bit and the Oracle installer file is 64-bit, so I am getting an error. I want to know if there is any way to install it?

It sounds like your operating system is 32-bit and you attempted to install Oracle 9.2 64-bit software. You need to download and install the appropriate Oracle software for your operating system – there is no way around this. If your operating system is 32-bit, you need to download Oracle 9.2 32-bit and try the installation again.
