comment Oracle Security Update Patch July 2011 - How to know if i am affected?
You can pay for lifetime support which means they will supply you with any patches they have already written, or help you out if your backups go screwy etc. But they are not fixing any new bugs (including security issues) and it may stop you patching/upgrading the OS.

comment Problem installing Oracle
You'd be better off on serverfault or dba.stackexchange.com. If you have the database software installed and are logged into the server as the oracle user, the "dbca" command should get you started.
