Search for the directory NETWORK under your oracle home.
tnsnames.ora should go to admin directory under that.

If you install full 10g client you should have network folder but try creating or adding a service thru Net Configuration Assistant or Net Manager.
Go to All programs -> Oracle-OraClient10g_home -> Net Configuraion Assistant to add your service name and then check under your xeclient directory and see if it generated a TNSNAMES.ora file and sqlnet.ora file.
