I will assume that you are planning to install Oracle 10g. The two documents you will be most interested in reviewing are:
- Oracle Database Quick Installation Guide,10g Release 1 (10.1) for Solaris Operating System (SPARC), Part No. B10814-01
- Oracle Database Installation Guide, 10g Release 1 (10.1) for UNIX Systems: AIX-Based Systems, hp HP-UX, hp Tru64 UNIX, Linux, and Solaris Operating System, Part No. B10811-05
The quick installation guide will give you a condensed overview of the installation process while the database installation guide will provide more detailed information. You can view the documents in either HTML or PDF.
