Oracle for Windows 2000

Due to business requirements I have a need to install Oracle on my PC.  Unfortunately I am running Win98 at the moment. As I understand it Oracle will not run on the Win95/98 platform.  I am an MSDN member and so access to OS software is not a problem.

I am tempted to move to Win2000, however I cannot find a definitive answer to the question;  Does Oracle run on Win2000?  If so what versions?  I currently have access to Oracle 8.0.5

Regards

Paul J.

Interesting article, however it doesn't mention anything about previous versions of Oracle and whether or not they will run on win2000.  Therefore in conclusion the article does not answer  the question.

I know that Oracle 8i will run on win2000, what I wish to know is whether verison 8.0.5 of Oracle will.
