    Hi all,

    I need to install Oracle on Linux. Presently, I am dumb about Oracle. I am just aware of basic sql queries.

    I want to learn Oracle Administration. I am using RHEL 5.

    I have few questions :--

    1) Which Oracle version should I install and
    and from where ?

    2) Is there any difference in working of Oracle in Linux or Solaris.
    If yes, which one should be better to learn focusing job prospects.

    3) What is the difference between Oracle DBA and Oracle Application DBA ?

    4) Which certification / course would be beneficial to go hand-in-hand with System Administration and Shell Scripts.

    Pls HELP !!!

    Thanks in adv.

    Talking Oca?

    1) 10g Express edition or 11g, download from oracle (

    2) No difference in working of Oracle in Linux or Solaris, but maybe focus on linux.

    3) Oracle DBA = Administrate/manage Oracle database, Oracle Application DBA = focus on Oracle "Applications" (Oracle ERP).

    4) OCA= Oracle DBA Certified Associate, OCP= Oracle DBA Certified Professional and Oracle DBA Certified Master (look here)
