E\oraXXX\init\initXXX.ora is just a directory and file name, you need to substitute the correct filename and location for your installation.

It doesn't work.
[root@(protected)]#

-bash-2.05b$
-bash-2.05b$ sqlplus "/ as sysdba"

SQL*Plus: Release 9.2.0.4.0 - Production on Tue Mar 16 14:32:53 2004

Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> startup pfile=E:\oraXXX\init\initXXX.ora;
LRM-00109: could not open parameter file 'E:oraXXXinitinitXXX.ora'
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
SQL>

I have a slight suspicion that the "bash" thing is the problem. It doesn't recognize
anything like "E:\"? Should I get rid of my OS and switch to the quasi-OS that does
recognize it?
