First, check that the script is executable. Change directory to the directory where the script is located and list the file ( ls -l ./ )

Also, check your documentation - I know with Sybase a sybase user account is created before the install so it can be used instead of using root. I believe Oracle does the same.

I think you have to start the installation with normal user account. In between it will prompt you to run 2 scripts as root. You may temporaririly login as root from another telnet session and excute the scripts and continue the installation. This is the way it works for oracle8i. I believe the same for oracle9i

I agree to one upstairs. Pls attention:
1.Do not use the root account as the oracle account,but you'd better Create UserGroups and accounts.
2.The Installer creates the orainstRoot.shscript in the tmp directory and prompts you to run the script when it finishes
installing Oracle products. Log in as the root user and run the script. The script sets the necessary file permissions for Oracle products and performs other root-related configuration activities. To run the script use the following commands:
# cd tmp
# ./
