 Memory Usage Question

Hello.  My question regards the amount of memory that oracle.exe should be
using when my computer first loads up.  I'm running win xp pro, w/ 512 mb
ram.  I using oracle 9i full enterprise install.  I noticed that oracle.exe
is using about 130 mb of ram.  Is this normal?  This is the figure before I
ever start sql plus.

Also.... I have about 1 2 weeks experience with Oracle.  I'm an MIS student
taking my first database class.  My teacher is very gung ho on Oracle.  It's
the first thing we started out with (instead of access, like in other
teacher's classes) so I had to install it to do my assignments.  With that
said, I'm pretty new to this program(s).  If you guys could provide me with
some links to beginners guides to Oracle I would appreciate it.

I couldn't find the FAQ for this newsgroup (assuming of course there is
one).  Could someone point me in the right direction.

The memory "overuse" issue is my priority.  I now have
OracleService(mydatabasename) set to manual in the services page of admin
tools.

Thanks advance for any help.

130Mb is actually pretty small -certainly not one would call 'overuse'.

For links, you could start with mine, and go on from there (it links to some
pretty important ones hosted by others).  Also, search www.google.com, for
this newsgroup, using the keyword "FAQ" -you'll find Jonathan Lewis posts on
that topic regularly.

go to otn.oracle.com

hit documentation(registration is free) hit 9i database, select books, then
read the Concepts document and the developer fundamentals.

Good place to start for a student. There is lots of free stuff on the web.
