Installing Developer 6i and database 8 together

I have Developer 6i and database 8, and I have problem installing them together because of the different versions. What can I do?

In order to successfully install both, you have to make sure and load Developer 6i first and make sure that it is installed in the Oracle home named DEFAULT_HOME. After you install 6i, you can then install the RDBMS into a different Oracle home (different Oracle home and different full path from the Developer install).

To get a more detailed list of steps, see a Metalink Document named Note:74131.1.
