Add a startup sctipt in your /etc/rc.d/rc2.d directory. Example:

# Startup for Oracle Databases as defined in /var/opt/oracle/oratab

echo "Starting Oracle in the background..." > /dev/console
ORACLE_HOME=`/usr/bin/cat /var/opt/oracle/oratab|grep -v '^#'|head -1|cut -d: -f
2 -s`

su oracle -c "${ORACLE_HOME}/bin/dbstart" < /dev/null

echo "Usage: /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S98dboracle"

exit 0

is there not an oratab file as in Solaris that tells the system to bring up the database and listener upon restart?

If there is a file that runs on system startup, then put your commands in it.
