Did you not build a database when you installed Oracle?  Check your services or in task manager look for oracle.exe using a lot of memory.

If you don't have one running, you should have a database configuration assistant in your program groups.  That will let you build a database.

I should verify: you installed the Oracle server and not the client, correct?
There is a lot to consider in creating a database
But to get you started  on windows

start -> all_programs -> oracle -> configuration and migration tools -> Database Configuration Assistant.

This will guide you through the database creation steps.

Documentation for reading.

PlSQL Developer:
Pl/SQL developer prompts you for your login information on startup.
If you have bypassed this, then you can go to   "Sessions" menu bar and select Logon.

when you say you installed 10g? was that the express version from oracle?

http:#a35365508 is a blind link.  It should not be part of the solution.

http:#a35300676 is a reference to the database configuration assistant which is mentioned in the first post, http:#a35146547

It should be a split between http:#a35146547 and http:#a35300676
