Ok, I was wrong about Oracle. It wasn't the install that chewed the
memory. It's the actual DB creation. After 12 hours the meter went from 0%
to 1% complete, with 64megs int.

I just checked ipcs and there are no entries. Is it possible that by
changing these settings (SHMMAX, SHMMNI, SHMSEG) that I could atleast
speed this thing up so it'll finish in a day?

I have no idea what I'm talking about here. Is this something that a
newbie can totally trash the machine by changing? The HP I'm installing on
only has one RAM slot open and I only have 32 meg DIMMs. So I'm not sure
that much more will do any good considering> I also really don't wanna
tear another machine apart for this.
