    Jeff Thanks.
    but I don't want to create database using dbca. I prefer to do manually like We(I always) do in Unix platform...so that i can learn more..
    so most of the clicks go away from your list.
    need steps like How to start...like got to cmd line..telnet to server..etc.. think I am a layman don't know much about windows..

    Thanks

    you create a database the same way you do on unix, just change the datafile paths
    just RTFM on oradim first - you need to create a service

    you need separate disks if you want to multiplex your control files over different disks, c: is just the boot disk in windows

    Follow the documentation for installing oracle on windows.As davey said multiplexing the control file is similar in windows only thing u have to mention is the correct path for them.
    Regarding the teaching of windows this is easiest OS and the most vulnerable.

    If you have different disks on windows then u may have different partitions like c:,e:,f:,g:,h:,i:...................
    these r your mountpoints as in unix

    Unix is user friendly. It's just very particular about who it's friends are.

    You should goto to Tahiti.oracle.com and download the Oracle Install guide for windows.

    simple as that.
