Use the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) to load software onto the PC.
The OUI won't even come up if the monitor component has 16 bit colors. This is because Java versions 1.1.n and above does not support 16 colors.
During the installation, do not move the OUI window. This safety precaution was originally adopted when there were known issues between Windows NT SP 5 and ATI display drivers. Also, do not run other programs at the same time.
If a DOS window pops-up, do not close it. If you do close the window, the installation of an Oracle component will be terminated. The DOS pop-up is a result of a Sun JRE bug.
