Error installing JRE during 10g installation on WinXP

Installing Oracle 10g on Windows XP with SP1 is giving me an error while installing the JRE (application at 6% completion, and after that continuously giving error). I have J2SDK1.4.2_04 and Tomcat 5.0.25 already installed in my machine. Can this be the reason? What is the way out?

It's hard to say what's causing the error since you didn't include the error message. If you think there's a possibility that it is related to the other software you have installed, then remove the other software and try the install again. You can look in the installer logfile as well since that usually provides more insight on error conditions (c:\program files\oracle\oui\logs).
