i am going through a walkthru to install Oracle on Linux.

Which user do i log in with? myself, root or who?

it asks to download Sun's Java Development Kit (JDK 1.3.1). i have dowloaded J2SDK 1.4.2. is that ok?

and where do i save it to? and where and how do i uncompress it?

    at first you have to log in as root.from root create
    an OS user oracle,(this user can be used for installing
    oracle in your machine)give the appropriate privileges to
    user 'oracle'.

    which version of oracle are you trying to install?if it is 9i
    then you can go on with installing oracle after installing
    J2SDK 1.4.2. .

    to install java log on as oracle user and try double clicking
    on the jdk setup it will install automatically
