Best OS for installing database and application server on same server

I would like to install Oracle 8.1.7/9i Release 1 Database and Oracle 9i Release 1 Application Server on one server. I would like to know if this is possible and which operating systems can best handle this configuration.

I would like to install Oracle 8.1.7/9i Release 1 Database and Oracle 9i Release 1 Application Server on one server. I would like to know if this is possible and which of the following operating systems can best handle this configuration: Suse Linux 8.0, 9.3, Redhat Enterprise Linux AS 4, Windows 2003 server, Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro?
Yes, it is possible; however, the server will need some horsepower to provide any performance. You are also installing applications that are no longer supported by Oracle. I would recommend that you use a supported version of Linux or at least one of the more recent versions.

Linux will provide more memory to the application than Windows will on a basic server (1-2 CPU and 4 GB RAM). These versions will require that the server support two databases and two application server instances--a lot for one server. If you are not being forced to use these older versions of the application server and database, I would recommend that you use the 10g database and application server, placing the metadata repository in the 10g database so that there is only one database.
