Oracle 9.2 and above are supported releases for the Windows XP platform; however, Oracle very clearly states that...
it only certifies on Windows XP Professional. You may be able to install Oracle successfully on Windows XP Media Center and create a database, etc., but if you do run into problems Oracle may not be able to assist you because you are on an unsupported operating system.
The certfication matrix can be found here: http://www.oracle.com/technology/support/metalink/index.html.
