Yes.  Oracle 8 is available for Linux.  Informix has also ported their
ISAM to Linux, and are working on ports of ESQL and the Dynamic Server.

Oracle has been talking about (but not yet producing) a package that
was both Linux and Oracle in the same box.  This is so you only have to
come up with an Intel platform and everything else you get from Oracle.
One thing not determined was if the box would admit to the presence of
Linux, or if it would be marketed as "stand-alone Oracle" with the O/S
hidden from view.
