The installer will create the ORA_DBA group and add the installing user to
it if it doesn't exist - and last time I looked would add the installing
user if the group existed but the user wasn't a member. I feel a blog
article coming on - especially as you might not actually want the installing
user to become sysdba on all databases on the server.
