Old Oracle with problem.

I am having the need to install Oracle 7.3 in WXP or W2000,  
but in both system I am having difficulty, because when it reaches 46% of the installation  
I have the following error message,  
" Unable to delete the NT Service for the SQL *Net V2 Listener " 
as I can solve that.

Are you logged in as NT administrator?. If yes, delete the oracle related services from "control panel" "services" option.
Also clean up the registry before you attempt to reinstall oracle.

The registry entries are in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE folder.
The first version supported on Windows 2000 is 8.1.6.
