Installation wiping out disk space

I am taking an Oracle class and have the Oracle 9i disk from school. I have installed it three times and every time, it wipes out all my disk space. I have had to have my computer repaired twice and a new hard drive installed. I really would like to use the disk at home so I can practice. But I am afraid to retry the install.

I am new to Oracle and computers in general. I am taking an Oracle class and have the Oracle 9i disk from school. I have installed it three times and every time, it wipes out all my disk space. I have had to have my computer repaired twice and a new hard drive installed. My class now is database administration and I really would like to use the disk at home so I can practice. But I am afraid to retry the install. Any advice?
The Oracle 9i version comes on three CD-ROMs. It can take quite a bit of disk space on your machine, depending on how many options you install. At a minimum, you will need at least 1GB of free space. You will also need at least 500MB of physical memory on your machine. All of the instructions you need to install Oracle on your machine can be found on Oracle's Web site. Look for the Installation Guide for your operating system. This document contains step-by-step instructions for a successful installation.
