I downloaded oracle install file, it's in cpio format. I never installed Oracle on FC(or even linux). How do I unpack cpio files. Pls help me, I'm new in this . Hope you guys can give me a tip?
When I execute the command it says "cpio: premature end of file" ?

try, cpio -idmv < linux_iasv90201_Disk1.cpio.gz

replacing linux_iasv90201_Disk1.cpio.gz with the appropriate filename
