Help A Noob! - Trying to install 10g on an old powerpc g3 imac running 10.4

Hi first post so please be gentle.

I'm trying to install oracle 10g release 2 on my trusty old imac. I've been following the instructions from this page:

And have got as far as the ./runInstaller line

When i try and do this i get the message 'cannot execute binary file'

Any ideas why this would happen?

I couldn't find the download mentioned on that particular guide, i am using this version of the oracle download

I'm not even sure if this is possible and i've even got the correct download.

Any guidance would be much appreciated, thanks :)
