According to Oracle's certification matrix, you cannot install Oracle on the Windows XP operating system. Only Oracle release 9.2 and above is supported and certified for Windows XP. You can probably install Oracle on Windows 2000 but it is now de-supported by Oracle, so it might be difficult to obtain support if you were to encounter a problem. If possible, I would suggest installing at least Oracle release 9.2. To review the minimum prerequisites for installation, the Oracle9i ( Database Installation Guide for Windows is a good place to start.
