configuring Oracle 10G - next steps

Hi
I've installed Oracle 10g on RHEL 5.3 without installing the database.  Please tell me what are the next steps to correctly install my database and configure it?

The reason I installed without database was because I kept getting shared memory errors -ora-27123
Thanks

Pete

As the oracle user run:  dbca

Pick one of the pre-built databases for speed of install, such as General Purpose.
I recommend you choose a character set AL32UTF8 (unicode)
Also choose to enable Archiving at step 12 or 13 or so.
