8.0.5 isn't supported on XP.  the earliest that is supported is 9.0.1 (8.1.7 as a client)

Thaks for the tip slightwv.

 Put i have tried to install 9.0.1 but i had endless errors such (Oracle Not Found) .

 And been told that there's an issue between Oracle & Intel Pentium 4 ? and there's a Patch especiall made for it,but i couldn't find the Patch.!!

 so if you could help me with the Correct way to do the Installation and if you have any information about the Patch used with Pentium 4 Guide i would more than grateful.

There were problems in the 8i days with P4s.  I don't think those are issues any longer.  If you're set on 9i I strongly suggest 9.2 (9.2.0.5 to be precise).  9.0 had numerous bugs/problems and, in my opinion, wasn't worth the time to install it.  I'm perfectly happy with 9.2.  You might also look at going to 10g.  I'm just now starting to experiment with it so really can't comment on it's stability.  I'm in production with 9.2.0.4 (the .0.5 patchset just recently came out and I haven't had the time/desire to experiment with it).

All that being said:
It's been so long since I've installed 9.0 that I can't remember all the problems or even if I encountered any.

In an attempt to assist you, at what point are you getting the "Oracle not found" message?  During the install itself, during the configuration wizards, running SQL*Plus after the install, etc...

You should also run the 'setup.exe' that is under the install/win32 directory.  There have also been posts on copying the entire contents of the CD onto the hard drive (I've actually had this work for me in the past as well).
