Errors trying to get started with Oracle9i on Win98

I installed Oracle9i on Win98. When I start SQL*Plus, I get ORA-01034 and 0RA-27101 errors. Please explain to me in detail as to what I can do to get going. How do I start Oracle? When I start the database, I am prompted to enter a password. What do I type in as the password? Where and what do I need to change?
If you've installed Oracle according to the installation guide, then you should have a database up and running on your host. You'll need to properly configure a database listener and an entry in your client's tnsnames.ora file using the Oracle Net Manager tools.

You may want to review the Crash Course: Oracle basics at SearchOracle.com. That may help you get a better understanding of the basic steps involved in setting up your first Oracle database.
