I tried installing Enterprise Linux on my home PC, which has decent configuration of 2.8 Ghz processer with 100GB HD and 512 MB RAM. I did download Enterprise Linux from Oracle Edelivery site. It has 5 parts zip file containing iso images, you have to cut DVD out off it.
It gave you an option of checking media (DVD which you just cut) although its not necessary. Rest all went smoother than Windows :-). I was able to finish my installation with in 35 min. I would say its easier and experience so far is good. I am planning to install 11i with 10g RAC on it. Will share my experience with that soon.
Happy Troubleshooting !!!
