With respect to your question regarding the default size of the SGA, if you create your database with the Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) and define your database as OLTP, it will recommend an SGA appropriate to that type of environment; however, you can adjust it accordingly. If you create your database manually with scripts, you will obviously have more control over the relevant parameters and be able to set them appropriately for your environment. You can view information about the SGA in the Oracle 10g Release 2 Administrator's Guide found here.
