Im about to install a std edition of oracle 10g on my own machine for testing only. However we allready have an Oracle db on our network.

Is it possible that I might cause any problems for the other runnig db, by installing my own?

Kind regards

No problems at all! You can even have the DBs run the same ORA_SID, just make sure you differentiate properly in your TNSNAMES.ORA
