Oracle 8.1.7 on Mandrake 9.1 install problems

I've been trying to install Oracle 8.1.7 on a fresh Mandrake 9.1 O.S for
days, but I'm still not able to get it running. I've tried several
install instructions that I found on the internet but no luck yet.

Here is a short description of what I did so far:

1. I installed the jdk118_v3-glibc-2.1.3.tar in the /usr/local/ dir and
made a symbolic link from /usr/local/java to this
2. I installed all the necessary groups and users (oracle, oinstall, dba)
3. I edited the .bashrc file of the oracle user. You can find this file
at the bottom of this message.
4. I installed oracle, choosing the enterprise edition - typical
configuration
5. During the linking phase a lot of errors occurred which I ignored
6. After the installation I untarred the glibc-2.1.3-stubs.tar.gz from
the Oracle-website and ran the setup_stubs.sh-script as oracle user.
When it got to the "Rebuilding client shared library"-part there were
some errors:

---

done.

The rest of the script worked fine though.
7. I applied patch nr 1538440 from the oracle install directory. When I
ran ./README.1538440 it gave the following errors:

8. I applied the patch nr. 1542738 also available in the oracle
installation directory. This didn't return errors.
9. When I started dbassist I received the following error:

---
/usr/local/oracle/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7/bin/dbassist:
/usr/local/oracle/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7/JRE/bin/jre: /bin/sh: bad
interpreter: Permission denied
---

The same error occurs with other utilities like netca, netassist

Please help me with some good advise because I ran out of options.
Thanks

Below you can find the .bashrc of the oracle user.

You can forget the previous post.

The problem was that I booted from a secure version of Mandrake
(vmlinuz-secure instead of vmlinuz) which is selected by default. When I
reinstalled Oracle on the normal version, everything went smooth.

Stupid of me.
