What precautions are to be taken when installing Oracle9i Enterprise Edition?
The installation guide for your particular platform has instructions on configuring the database server as well as information about installing the Oracle software. On Windows platforms, most installations do not require special pre-installation configuration (just login as a local administrator). On Unix platforms, you will likely need to configure some kernel parameters related to shared memory and semaphores as well as setting shell limits and environment variables prior to starting the installation.
The documentation for each server release, including platform-specific installation guides, is available at otn.oracle.com/documentation/.
