Error invoking target 'relink'

Trying to install 10g Enterprise (32 bit)  on Red Hat 62 bit server.  I get the error
'error invoking target 'relink' of makefile '/u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.01/db_1/precomp/lib/ins_precomp.mk'.
Anybody know what I need to do to correct?  Guessing it has something to do with the 62 bits on Red Hat.

I assume you meant Red Hat 32 bit server.

You have to download 64 bit Oracle for Linux. The 64 bits 10g were introduced first long before 32 bits 10g

Nopes.
The Red Hat is 64 bit.  The Oracle is the 32 bit.  We didn't want to try Oracle 64 bit because it will want so much memory.

Oracle says you can do the 32 on 64 bit.  No?

All Server and O/S versions without 64-bit notations indicate 32-bit versions.
The 64-bit O/S is capable of running programs that were compiled on a 32-bit O/S and 64-bit O/S.
The 32-bit O/S runs only programs that were compiled on a 32-bit O/S. This is called Binary Compatible.
A 32-bit application will work on both a 32-bit and 64-bit O/S, whereas a 64-bit application will only work on a 64-bit O/S.
Note, however, that relinking must occur on the O/S version that the application was compiled, as this affects patch sets.
Note: These statements do not necessarily apply to Oracle on Windows O/S's.
