1) For the oracle data file I prefer to install it on /var/oradata, and
2) For the oracle log file I prefer to install it on /var/oralog
How can I realize this (I do not see the place where I can specify the above information during the installation)?
Thanks to help.

I havent tried installing 10g, but in 9i there is an option to specify the file locations during installations.
after starting the installation using "oracle universal installer", in the last stage there comes a windows "file locations" in which you can change the locations of the
datafiles-->*.dbf--> which is your datafiles
click on each file and change the location (PATH) and proceed with installation.
Hope this helps.
Wish you a Hapyy New Year 2006.

All you need to do is take your time as you run through the Oracle Universal Installer.
The options are not always flashing and obvious, but you can define your data locations to any place you choose.
We install our databases into the /home filesystem with our own environment and customizations.

To intall Oracle on different Linux version, check out the following url: http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingOracle10g.shtml
To create a database the easy way, start the dbca (DataBase Creation Assistant), which can be found in the $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory. There are several Oracle Datafiles (minimal one per tablespace), controlfiles and redologfiles. Where you'd like to store them, that's your business,
