Installation problem help me plz...

P: n/a
Dear all,
I am trying to install the oracle 9i on my laptop. I am not able to
connect the sqlplus to the database. it says tns name resolution error
or no listener. I configured using net configuration assitant and it
automatically creats the tnsname.ora and listener.ora. the entries in
both the files match i mean the protocol addressing and connect
descritors. the naming method i choose was "local" and i choose the
name service which was promted. Do i need to do anything to get my
SQLplus up and running?? Please help me. i need it very badly as i am
preparing for the exam:-{{

Suggest you start your learning curve at one of the following:

http://www.dizwell.com >> Red Hat 9i installation document

http://otn.oracle.com/obe/start/index.html

Howard's RedHat docco is so full of useful information that everyone
should read it, even if you want nothing to do with Linux. (For
example, it answers your questions.) The Oracle By Example series also
gives you the same info in the form of a 'Paint by Number' step by step
guide.
