I know this sounds daft, but have you got oracle9i for win2k - when i saw another supprt topic for this, someone was tryinmg to install oracle for win98 on ME which is not supported by Oracle (because it is total toilet).
does the install start? how far does it get? have you been prompted for a home? ever installed oracle on that system before?
