Problem installing 8i on Windows 2000

I am having trouble in installing Oracle 8 Personal onto a Windows 2000 machine. Very early in the installation process, when the dependencies for SQL*Net Client are being analyzed, I recieve the following error message

 stopsrvc,vrf[78]: Type mismatch in argument 
 '0' 
 when calling 'contains' 
 stopsrvc.vrf[78]: 'STRING' expected when 
 'LIST' 
 found 
At this point the installation terminates. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

There have been a few problems with Oracle 8 Personal Edition that are identical to yours. Basically, those problems were due to a very old version of Oracle 8 (i.e. 8.0.4) which are not fully supported on Windows 2000. It is probably best to get a copy of Oracle 8.1.7 or 9i for Windows 2000.
