2. Get Oracle 9i

2.1. CD Installation

If you got Oracle 9i on a CD then mount it:

mount -r -o loop=/dev/loop0 ora9id1.iso Disk1/

2.2. Download

Otherwise download it from http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/oracle9i/htdocs/linuxsoft.html.

2.3. Install

Extract all three files:

gunzip ship_9204_linux_disk1.cpio.gz

cpio -idmv -I ship_9204_linux_disk1.cpio

Don't forget the -I option or you will get errors during the extraction.

This command will expand the cpio archive to the Disk1 directory. Repeat the process for the other two archives.
