    have you setup an Oracle DB on Linux before?

    If you can login to the Linux shell account as the 'oracle' user (or whoever installed the database), then you can execute the following commands:

     sqlplus '/ as sysdba'
     alter user system identified by whatever;

    where 'whatever' is replaced by what you want the system password to be.
