Yeh, the client part only though. I got over the /proc/#/cmd issue by suspending
the install and creating the entry manually. Everything went fine
until point where it checked if oracle db is running -- the install
program said some file exists which didn't in / nor /emul/linux.
So I gave up and installed it under linux.

I'd vote for it (at least when COMPAT_LINUX is defined).
