ORA-1053 error after 8i installation on Windows 2003

After installation of an Oracle 8i database on Windows 2003, we are facing the following error during Oracle service startup (in auto as well as manual mode): "ORA-1053: Could not start the Oracleserviceora8i2 service on local computer."

Recently we installed Windows 2003 Server. After installation of an Oracle 8i database on Windows 2003, we are facing the following error during Oracle service startup (in auto as well as manual mode): "ORA-1053: Could not start the Oracleserviceora8i2 service on local computer." Please suggest a suitable solution.
According to Oracle's compatibility matrix, Oracle 8i is not certified to run on Windows 2003 Server. This may or may not be the cause of your problem. To view the certification matrix, click here.

In any case, you could try removing the line

sqlnet.authentication_services=(NTS) 
from the ORACLE_HOMEnetworkadminsqlnet.ora file on the client and server or set
sqlnet.authentication_services=(NONE)
