    I have been given the task of managing
    a Oracle 8i Standard Server on NT.

    I have done the creating of table/views/etc. but not
    server management.

    The situation is:
    The network is Novel & Windows. And Oracle has been
    installed. Thats it.

    How do I get started?

    I bought the book Oracle DBA 101 and it isn't covering
    that basis that I need. Anybody have a better book
    or some better help files on the net?

    I have been thrown into this (nothing new there LOL)
    and I am expected to get this going within a week for
    application development (nothing new there either)

    I am sinking fast.... can anyone throw me a rope?

    How quikly you can get/find and print the following manual hard copy from Oracle/Oracle site ? Just to startup. This one is good. I was more DBA on Unix Platform. It did help me a lot on NT to start with.

    For the rest of the stuff Generic documentation 'Adminstrator Guide' would do.

    Not that you couldn't do it yourself, but have you thought of getting a consultant for a couple of days? In a couple of days you can have your database up and properly setup and you will get about 2 months of experience just by watching.
