I wouldn't know about Maya, but I installed Oracle 10g a few weeks back, and 
it also only (supposedly) works in RedHat and a couple of other distros.  
Fooling the installer into thinking it was RedHat was a simple matter of 
creating the file /etc/redhat-release and putting one line in it:
 Red Hat Linux release 2.1 (drupal)

However, the first time I installed an Oracle database it had major headaches 
because it was relying on redhat patched libraries, so you could have the 
same sort of problem.
