How to install Oracle on a text-mode Linux box

The environment:
1) Computer 1: my Fedora 7 linux. Installed in textmode only. No X-server, no-gnome and no-kde.
Computer 1 IP: 192.168.1.9
2) Computer 2: some computer with X-server capability.
In my case I used CYGWIN on a WinXP machine.
Computer 2 IP: 192.168.1.79
HowTO:
a) Setup Fedora 7 as usual:
==========================================================================================
under /home/oracle... unpack oracle 10.2.0.1
unzip 10201_database_linux32.zip
and it will create a folder called "database"
and to install oracle we run: (after all the below
setup be finished)
cd database
./runInstaller &
------------------------------------------------------------/etc/sysctl.conf file:
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.shmmax = 2147483648
kernel.shmmni = 4096
# semaphores: semmsl, semmns, semopm, semmni
kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128
fs.file-max = 65536
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65000
net.core.rmem_default=262144
net.core.rmem_max=262144
net.core.wmem_default=262144
net.core.wmem_max=262144

# From Fedora 7 DVD
cd /media/dvd/Fedora
rpm -Uvh setarch-*
rpm -Uvh --force tcl-*
rpm -Uvh compat-db-*
rpm -Uvh --force libXau-devel-*
rpm -ivh gcc (install all the dependences... starting
from kernel-header)
yum install libXp libaio
------------------------------------------------------------groupadd oinstall
groupadd dba
groupadd oper
useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle
passwd oracle
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1
chown -R oracle.oinstall /u01
------------------------------------------------------------/etc/redhat-release

------------------------------------------------------------.bash_profile (oracle user)
# Oracle Settings

TMPDIR=$TMP; export TMPDIR

export CLASSPATH
if [ $USER = "oracle" ]; then
if [ $SHELL = "/bin/ksh" ]; then
ulimit -p 16384
ulimit -n 65536
else
ulimit -u 16384 -n 65536
fi
fi
==========================================================================================
b) On CYGWIN (X-Server box)
In my case... in WinXP... I ran:
Start -> Run ->
"C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\startxwin.bat"
It will open a terminal screen:
==> you must authorize linux box (192.168.1.9) to

connect onto this X-server:
==> run: xhost +192.168.1.9
mson77@192.168.1.79 ~
$ ssh oracle@192.168.1.9
The authenticity of host '192.168.1.9 (192.168.1.9)'
can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is
7a:43:73:7d:3c:a2:05:9a:4a:7f:6f:c1:23:08:f1:55.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
yes
Warning: Permanently added '192.168.1.9' (RSA) to the
list of known hosts.
oracle@192.168.1.9's password:

[oracle@f7vmware database]$ ./runInstaller &

(by the way... f7vmware is 192.168.1.9... is a F7 host
under VMware, in my case)
