It can be installed on windows Xp although not certified. so there would not be support there.
but for testing and development purpose. go ahead.

Most likely windows XP machines meet the min requirement very well.

Mem should be above 64M, CPU 400Mhz, disk space (not a problem)

Yes, but there are sub-versions to 8i, and the first ones will have all sorts of problems. The versions of 8i that are certified for Windows 2000 will work well with XP. The ones that are certified will say so on the CD label.

I agree that any hardware good enough for XP should be good enough for 8i, but I'd recommend at least 256MB of RAM, just because XP is a hog and you need some left over for 8i.

I did try to install Oracle 8.1.6 Client at window XP but it seems failing me due to the auto Run terminate directly.
