Watch Question

I didn't understood your question :

You said that your OS is Windows but then why you want to install linux version of oracle .
 As your system is in 64 bit so you should install oracle 11g with 64 bit supported.

If you want to use linux then install oracle virtual box and then download the linux version which you want -- > install linux on that and then get oracle 11g for Linux x86-64 -- install it .

You also get oracle VM from e-delivery web site too. Where you just need to download it and start using it .

- the latest Oracle Database 11g R2 only support on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate (32-bit and x64). Not Windows Home.  however, you can try to install Oracle database on the machine only there is no support on that platform. run the installer from command prompt and specify the -ignoreSysPrereqs  flag to skip the pre-requisite check during the installation. see the link above for the available Oracle database to download.

- another approach is to click on the error under the 'Status' grid during the pre-requisite check to verified the error. then the installation will proceed. see the following example:
- you can also install the express edition - Oracle XE if you intend to learn about Oracle.
