We had to solve this the hard way.
It appears that the Oracle Installer could not write a dozen or so MB to
the primary partition because the NT guy made the partition size 2GB and
made the swap (dynamic virtual memory page file) also 2GB ! So when
Oracle Installer loaded down the system, the swap file grew to fill the
entire partition. That caused the installer fatal error.
After that failure, the NT guy, rebuilt the whole server and lastly (at
my request) put the 2GB swap file on the 25 GB D partition, Oracle 8i
installed just fine.
