Every time I try to install Oracle 10g on Windows Server 2003, I get an error. It says it's thrown when the IP address of a host cannot be determined. Also the Database Configuration Assistant fails, and I get this error: "OS error in starting oracle service." What is the solution?

The Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) needs to be able to determine the hostname and IP address of the machine where it is being installed. Ensure that the 'nslookup <ip address of host>' command returns the correct hostname. Also ensure that the Domain Name Server contains the proper hostname and IP address of this server.
