1) Just an fyi, I have a few boxes Oracle 9iR2 running
on FreeBSD 5.2.1 in a test environment and it runs as
well if not better (consistently for a year and a
half) than Oracle 9iR2 on our production Suse Linux
1a) Also, I have Oracle 10G running on Mac OSX which
Oracle has support for.

2) I also put Snort on OpenBSD in front of the boxes
to add a layer of security. Snort 2 has support for
filtering/blocking specific sql statements, etc. and
is a terrific way to add a powerful layer of security.
Just $16.99/mo. or less.
