The Oracle installer is a java based application
and by default invokes the java runtime with the
JIT (just in time compiler) enabled. When
installing to a Pentium 4 machine the JIT module
which resides in "symcjit.dll" does not handle
the processor id correctly and crashes. To
workaround this problem simply disable the JIT
compiler option in the Oracle installation
parameter file "ORAPARAM.INI" by adding the
"-nojit" option as follows:

JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -mx48m

The file is located in the "install" directory on
the product CD. Note: We have copied the client
CDs to our server under a samba share. Users
simply map this share as a network drive and run
the setup program from the base directory.

NOTE: It is recommended that you first install
the latest java runtime module from Sun which is
currently "j2re-1_3_1_01-win-i.exe".
