Seems you are trying to install IFS before installing Oracle. See what exactly do you install and follow the instructions
for installing every produvt.

Or you made installation on this server before. In this case remove Oracle Inventory.

Normally there are two resons for this problem.

1. Permission problems on the Oracle Inventory
2. Corrupted JAR file in either the staging area or the Oracle Inventory

In your case as you have already removed the Oracle Inventory and then tried the installation, most likely reason is a corrupted JAR file in the staging area. This means that the base software that you have is corrupted. If you have downloaded 10g, then try to download again.

JAR file was not corrupt, i tried with the same installation on another computer where i had it unzipped and it worked there, well then i burned another cd directly with the unzipped folder contents and not the folder itself, i.e. autorun, setup etc. directly on a cd rather than one folder containing all the files...and it worked...
when the installation files were inside one folder name e.g. oracle_10g and i was installing from there it was not working. well that was little strange but anyway problem is solved...
