A mount point is a directory that you use to mount a filesystem on. Once you mount a filesystem, it is available for use. I believe Oracle is asking to know where its filesystem is. If you're just installing Oracle to learn about it, this could just be a directory. If you're installing it on a production system, this should be a mount point for a (mounted!) filesystem that will be used by Oracle.

How about a using the man pages on the command: mount, this should give you enough info to mount anything.

If you are using Oracle 8 or latest you need 4 mount points as U01, U02, U03, U04. This is posiible by create 4 directories at the . using " mkdir /u01" command and mount the disks using " mount /dev/.. /u01 .." etc command.
And you start installing Oracle from CD it asks for the mount points
For more information read Oracle manual.
