DBCA BOMBS ON 9iR2 / Redhat 8

I have installed 9i R2 on Redhat 8. I have a dual proc p3 1.4ghz with 2 gigs of RAM. I instaleld the database and chose to run DBCA at a later time.

DBCA runs, but it wont create the database. WHen i click finish, its exits and dumps some errors to the terminal window.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease help
