Oracle 8.0 and 9i on same machine

Can we install Oracle 8.0 and Oracle 9i on one standalone machine with Windows XP, both working with the same login with admin privileges?

Can we install Oracle 8.0 and Oracle 9i on one standalone machine with Windows XP, both working with the same login with admin privileges?
According to Oracle's certification matrix, Oracle 8.0 is not certified or supported to run on the Windows XP platform. Oracle 9.2 and above only is certified for this operating system, so I would not recommend installing Oracle 8.0 on this platform.

With respect to your question, you can install more than one release of Oracle on the same machine using the same login account and admin privileges. Prior to installing a new release of Oracle, it is good practice to read the installation guide. This will provide you with hardware and software requirements of the software.
