Simply saying, you need to install compat-* libraries.

Install the Java development kit:

# Make the bin file executable
chmod u+x j2sdk-1_3_1_09-linux-i586.rpm.bin
# Run the bin file. Agree to the terms and conditions.
./j2sdk-1_3_1_09-linux-i586.rpm.bin
# Install the RPM file.
rpm -ivh jdk-1.3.1_09.i586.rpm

im sure ive got JDK installed... where do i check if it is installed and is it installed according to the above 8 lines?

Don't use knife, boddy! Think 'bout parents :-)))
I think you need to install compat libraries 'cause the error is GLIBC.

Look at docs
# From Fedora Core 2

rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.126.i386.rpm

Second, you need to set some veriables at you .bash_profile file of the account you supposed to run Oracle.

No. You have to install database as a user who will start it.
