Last I remember seeing [url=http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/database10g/documentation/database10g-096307.html]Oracle[/url] was not even supporting their own EL6 clone, nor RHEL6, for Oracle databases.

That was me, that was in February, if I remember correctly. I suspect that's changed (but don't know--we're running it on OLE 5.x)

The best thing to do is have your DB people open a support ticket and find out if OLE 6.x is a supported 10G platform. If it is, then CentOS 6.x should certainly work. (Even at the time we checked, they didn't say it wouldn't work, they just said it was unsupported.)

Another tip--if the hardware vendor (Dell in our case) supports RH, they'll often be quite helpful. It seems as if vendors too, don't want to send you to Oracle support--though in the one case I did have to deal with Oracle's Linux support, the person was knowledgeable and helpful.

Boot to runlevel 3, AKA text mode, by interrupting GRUB by typing a character such as "space" then appending to the kernel line by typing "a", backspacing through "rhgb quiet" and appending " 3". That should give you more verbose output and perhaps let you log in as root. If that fails you can try runlevel 1 (single user) instead of 3.

If all of the above fails then booting is rescue mode from installation media is the next thing I'd try.
