problem with new Database

Hi Guys:
I’m doing my first steps in Oracle 10g and first steps to the next certification also.
I’ve a little problem at moment to create a new database.
I’m working with Windows 2003 and Oracle 10g 10.2.0
The specific problem happened when I did create the second database, then I’ve 2 questions:
1- why it don’t create in the windows program menu another menu “Database control – my new database”
2 – The listener is not working…now…and it seems like no database is registered.
- After that I’ve uninstalled and installed the database again and now with just one database my listener is still crazy.
- The Listener is hire:
# listener.ora Network Configuration File: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\network\admin\listener.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.
(ORACLE_HOME = C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1)
(PROGRAM = extproc)
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = optimus)(PORT = 1521))
It give two errors:
Database Error
Listener refused the connection with the following error: ORA-12514, TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor The Connection descriptor used by the client was: (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=optimus)(PORT=15 21)))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=base1)))  
And in the enterprise manager says:
Agent Connection to Instance
ORA-12505: TNS:el listener no conoce actualmente el SID proporcionado en el descriptor de conexión (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach)
I guess it is too easy to some of you.
Thanks a lot for the help
