Backup your config files and the data. You will probably have to reinstall Oracle 8i.
(/etc and /home compulsory backup, rest optional, other than the data itself)

There is problem for Oracle8i running on RH >7.1 because of compatible problem off java virtual machine with new glibc version. Read articles about this on otn.oracle.com to make nessessary changes. Instruction could be find at http://www.idevelopment.info/data/DBA_tips/DBATIP_54.shtml, focus to "Oracle Environment Variable Settings" session.
