    in your AIX you should have $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin create file under that and not under ORA_HOME\network\network\admin as the link says

    from your dbca sessions log can you paste exact error. also make sure your using same user to run dbca with which you installed software.

    Also paste o/p of "id" command from which user you are invocking dbca.

    there can be any problem because of which this error is coming..
    You paste 5-10 lines above and below of error message. Also paste if you see any errors in alert log. If you are on 10gR1.

    ORA-01034 means either your database is not started or your ORACLE_SID is pointing to a non-existing or non-started instance.

    Your original post suggest you had an installation error, if that was the case please post your installation errors and focus in solving the installation isssue.
