Agreed -- and Oracle, love them or hate them, publishes configurations 
that they *will* support, it includes several Linux distros (RHES and 
SuSE, if my memory isn't faulty).

So: if you want to run Oracle, make sure you're running a system they 
support (solaris, RHES) and not something offbrand.
