You have to re-build the kernel, but don't worry, if you've a reasonably sized machine you should be ok. The question is do you know you  need to re-set them? I know the install instructions say you do, but they're a little half baked anyway. For example they don't say to install from a console (but you should). Just go for it, you should be OK. I've installed it three times on two different machines, and although not tested fully it runs & I can create tables.

To answer your question though they're in /usr/src/linux/include/asm/<somewhere>
If you have any problems try comp.database.oracle it's been quite active on the linux port lately.
