Installing Oracle 10G on Fedora Core 5


I've dowloaded the newest release of Oracle 10g and wish to install it on my 64-bit Fedora Core 5 system.

Oracle claims that the new distro will install on Core 5, but the installer disagrees, claiming that Core 4 is the highest supported O/S.

Does anyone have a definitive explanation as to how to install 10g on Core 5?

I'd already read the article, but completely missed the part about lying to the installer and making it think that it's a FC4 system.
