    You mean you need to install Oracle database 10g and not the client? If it's the actual database software, first step is of course to download Oracle database from Oracle's website.

    Which brings us to what system do you want to install on? Is it Windows? (XP? Server 2003?) or Linux or Solaris? You need to download the oracle database according to your Os.

    The steps would be according to which system you want to install on. For Windows based machines it's fairly simple just like installing any other software.

    You should download the latest 10g version, in which case you won't have to patch anything.

    Regards

    Are you sure about this ?

    I think at first you need to install the base version ,i.e., 10.2.0.1.0 and then install the latest patchset ( 10.2.0.6.0, i think)

    Sorry my mistake, it's a long while since I installed Oracle database. I presumed the latest version might be available to download. :(
