Hi,
Forgot to mention something. 
 
In case you do not have unpartitioned space on the disk you can try this
-->
But beware it did get me into trouble the last time I tried doing it
while watching Vivek comedy on tv!
 
We assume that u have more than 3 gb space and that ur partition isn't
fragmented (much).
 
1)     Delete the partition
2)     Add the same partition but with a smaller size
3)     Add the 3gb partition that u want for oracle
 
But, see if u can do it another way ( I DO NOT LIKE MESSING WITH DISK
PARTITIONS! :-) )

Hi,
            Try using "fdisk". Type "m" for help on commands in the
fdisk prompt. Use 'n' to create a new partition.
            After you finish making the partition say "hda2", Use mount
/dev/hda2 /oracle
            
Hope that helps,
Prashanth Ellina
