Here's a RHCS4-ized Oracle iAS (infrastructure) script.  I think it
lives in CVS head.

An older version of this script was used for CFC certification on RHEL
2.1 - so things may have changed since then, but it's probably a
reasonable start.

I don't recall having to have the tweak the hostname; that sounds like a
new thing to me.  Also, I don't know all the possible ways to get Oracle
running -- chances are excellent that this won't work except for an "iAS
Infrastructure" installation.
