Thanks JoeZ430 for quick response.
I went through this link
"http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=252780
Open netinfo and select the node "machines". For convenience I created a copy of "localhost" by selecting it and clicked on the "Duplicate" icon. Then changed "ip_address" to the static address and "name" to a host name of my chosing. Lastly, saved the changes.

but I don't know where I need to look for netinfo because my OS is Windows XP and  chnage the IP address using localhost.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks in advance

How is your PC connected to the network? Is it using a static IP address? If so, simply adding an entry for the hostname to
...\system32\drivers\etc\hosts could resolve that issue.

I have sbc internet provider, so I think it's not a static IP address?
Thanks in advance

one way of to set a static ip for your machine is to create a loopback adapter. you could follow the below instructions on how to create one.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/839013

afterward, you could set a static ip for that adapter, and register that in your host file (c:\windows\system32\etc\hosts)

If the PC is directly connected to the internet, i.e. not via a router, it's safe to assume that is getting a dynamic IP address.
In that case I'd go with the solution proposed by harry_hendrata, i.e. configure a loopback adapter with a static IP address
and have the hostname resolve to that address by registering it in the hosts file.

Thanks harry_hendrata and Thanks mglxxx
I configured a loopback adapter but  now I  am unable to locate host file (c:\windows\system32\etc\hosts) . I performed these steps---> explorer  then C drive \windows\system32 but here I am not able to see etc folder.
Could you please tell me how can I register IP address.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks to all.
 Thanks harry hendrata and Thanks mglxxx
First I configured a loopback adapter with a static IP address
 registered it in the hosts file. and now  I successfully installed oracle 10g on my pc without any error message.
Thank you very much.

That's good news. Apparently you figured out by yourself that the full path of the hosts file is C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
