Just delete the complete files in your /u01 directory or whichever directory you installed you oracle files.
if not required,drop oracle user and with the home directory.As there is no concept of registry in LInux,deleting files will serve your purpose.

To uninstall oracle 9i manually,
first delete the /u01 directory or
wherever you have installed your oracle database.

[[root@oracleserver root]]# rm -rf /u01

Then drop the
oracle user you have created,plus the oracle groups
like oinstall,dba and oper.

[[root@oracleserver root]]#groupdel oper
[[root@oracleserver root]]#groupdel oinstall
[[root@oracleserver root]]#groupdel dba
[[root@oracleserver root]]#userdel -R oracle

Delete the Orainst.loc and oratab files from /etc
directory.

[[root@oracleserver root]]#rm /etc/oratab
[[root@oracleserver root]]#rm /etc/orainst.loc

Now your oracle database is completely uninstalled.

Please take a complete backup of your database
before unistalling oracle. Please do the above tasks
at your own risk after taking a backup
of your database, otherwise you may end up loosing
your data.
