I am attempting an installation of Oracle Applications 11i (11.5.9) on Windows XP Professional.
In the Pre-install check it asks for a Domain.
This is a standalone XP Pro box, can I assign a domain and get Aplications running correctly in this environment?

The pre-install check is
1. ping -n 1 <hostname> and
2. ping -n 1 <hostname>.<domainname>

They fail because the current network setup is Workgroup, not Domain.
I would assume that there is a workaround so I dont have to install a Server to host the Domain?. Any experiences, or ideas?
