Whenever I have installed Oracle products recently, whether on Linux or 
UNIX, it has always required the X/Java "OUI" bit to be run as "oracle" 
or whatever user you decide should own it, and just a couple of scripts 
from the command prompt as root. Definitely no X as root.

OK it sucks and the old Curses installer they used up to 8.0 (I think) 
was much easier and more reliable, but it's not as bad as it looks from 
the above.
