Starting from where it was left.. The SAP installer was prompting you to install Oracle database after completion of stage 9. Do not exit from here. Open a separate Xterm and set the terminal so that you can run X application. Whether the terminal was set right or not can be chaecked by running xclock. If the clock applet appears on the terminal then you are done.Second step is a modification in oraparam.ini file. This file does not have SuSE-10 in the entry of the certified version and hence if you directly start the installation of the Oracle it will fail. Hence one require to modify the the certified version in this oraparam.ini file in /oracle/stage/102_64/database/install/ directory as below.
From
[Certified Versions]
Linux=redhat-3,SuSE-9,redhat-4,UnitedLinux-1.0,asianux-1,asianux-2
To
[Certified Versions]
Linux=redhat-3,SuSE-9,SuSE-10,redhat-4,UnitedLinux-1.0,asianux-1,asianux-2
After this is done, we do need to start the installer by executing RUNINSTALL from the directory. on execution, this will take a while almost a minute for searching and loading different Java program and finally the OUI GUI window will appear. Look the following two screen shots below for the same.

By default it will select the inventory location as well as the group which has access rights on /oracle directory. Keep it as it is and click next. This will take you to the inventory summary screen where you will see oracle installer is loading the inventory files. Finally it will list all the products, and here press install button. Refer to the following screen shot for the same.

 On pressing installation will start, this involves copying files, compiling libraries, linking and the whole setup may take half an hour. Finally it will come to configuration script running section where it will ask you to run two script as root. Open a separate Xterm session, login as root and then execute those two script. Choose default options on answer to the questions. Refer following two screen shots for the same.

Finally you need to click on the OK screen which will end installation with the final installer screen showing you some urls which may note but as per as SAP is considered those information are really useless. Refer to the screen shot below for the same.

This will finally end the database installation part. Go back to the SAP installer screen where the installer is standing still giving you the message to install the Database. Refer to last screen shot shown in the page Installation of SAP – BI 7 (Part 2) – the CI
