    I think that this is more the topic of a training course than a forum answer, Abdus.

    Dear,
    how can one answer this question?
    If you are smart enough, willing to study and learn, hard worker, motivated and responcible,then I belive you will be able to handle any job ( By any I mean ANY even not Oracle related and even not IT related - say become a marketing manager)
    "I work on Oracle 8.1.7 on Windows" could mean that you use RMAN to make hot backups, you have made lots of performance tununing etc. what would mean you are a good dba, and also could mean that you have imported from time to time some dmp provided to you, what would mean that you have no idea what's going on.
    From your post I would say that you are not very experienced, so it is up to you if you want to take the challange, spend several hard monts studing, reading trough the nights etc. or not. Especially if you are not the only DBA but a junior member of a DBA team, then I do not see any other issue here, than the question do you really want to do it or not

    OK, let me switch to sherlock holmes mode and do some analysis and deduction.

    1) When you say "large",it implies that you will not be the only DBA,in fact, you will a DBA team member.
    2) The usual recruitment process is two or more rounds of technical interview.Assuming that you have cleared them successfully and you don't know anything about Oracle 10G or Linux, it can be deduced that they have not asked any such questions related to aboce topic ==> they are not expecting an experianced guy in these topics, and they don't expect you to start delivering from the instant you join..Furthermore it can also be deduced that they already have some senior guys handling the systems presently.
    So they are going to teach you what you don't know.
    3) As oracle 8 has been desupported by Oracle corp.(In fact, oracle 9i will be desuppported by July next year), the probabilty of finding jobs on these versions is becoming less and less.It also implies sooner or later you will also have to start on Oracle 10G.

    Elementary, my dear samad. Elementary.
