    Can't install as root, can't install as oracle

    914387
      I'm trying to install Oracle11g on Oracle Linux 5.7 in VirtualBox.

      If I try to install as root, I get the error:
      The user is root. Oracle Universal Installer cannot continue installation if the user is root.
      If I try to install as oracle, I get this message after the 2nd screen:
      OUI-10182 The effective user ID does not match the owner of the file, or the process is not the super-user; the system indicates that the super-user privilege is required.
      Please advise
