I know that Red Hat, Dell and Oracle got together to get 9i working on a Dell server running Red Hat.  Oracle (according to Red Hat) advised a MS shop to run Red Hat on dells for 9i.  They were getting a horrible memory leak on both Win 2K and 2K3.  They got the help of all three vendors and were saying it works better than they imagined.  But they are staying with Windows for everything else.

Yes RH9 or RH Enterprise is good for installing Oracle, have a check here http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle9i.shtml#OracleInstallationErrors

But you better put more RAM and make bigger swap space for it, also it's need xwindows for oracle installation, so when you install linux, beware to install the xwindows stuff.

you may also consider to use the solaris, have a check here http://www.orasolaris.org/

hope this info can help

Bear in mind, Red Hat 9 is not certified for Oracle 9i. SuSE Enteprise Linux (SLES) is the best and accorrfing to Oralce website it provides he best performance. RH Enterprise could be your second option.

Refer to this link for more info.

For Hardware i would recommend IBM servers which have higher reliability and advanced technology.
