Pressed "send" too fast....

I would think that Oracle would run pretty much out of the box on RHEL5 
(and CentOS 5), as the kernel/glibc is not bleeding edge and Redhat 
works pretty close with Oracle (as they do with other Enterprise 
software). That does not mean it is ready for production, but it should 
be ready for testing and piloting.

And if it turns out that there is a God, I don't believe that he is evil.
The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
