What about PostgreSQL? :-)
I had a hard enough time getting Oracle 9i2 installed and working with 
Redhat 7.3 for a Compiere ERP/CRM setup
Follow that guide and setup a test system using Redhat 7.x. Once you are 
comfortable with installing/setting up/running Oracle on this platform 
you can tranfer that knowledge into setting it up in Linux Compat Mode 
(which essentially is redhat 7.2) on FreeBSD. Thats the only advice I 
can offer.
