This is a workaround on Oracle's site. But here it is just in case:
See OraBug131291.1 and the patch zip file for

fact: Oracle Universal Installer
fact: MS Windows 2000
fact: MS Windows NT
fact: MS Windows 98
fact: Intel Pentium IV
fact: Pentium 4 Processors
symptom: Oracle Universal Installer fails to start
symptom: Installation fails
symptom: Installation hangs
symptom: Installer hangs
symptom: Installer exits
symptom: No error messages appear
cause: (Bug:1507768)
Installer fails when running on new Pentium 4 Processors
Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the Sun JRE and
Symantec JIT will encounter this problem.

fix:

There are 3 possible workarounds:

1. Obtain patch 1507768 from Oracle Support Services via Metalink.
See Patch readme for patch installation details.

2.
a) Copy the content of the Installation to a temporary folder on the harddisk,
rename ALL copies of file 'symcjit.dll'
b) Go to folder install and edit file 'oraparam.ini' (attention: write
protection) and change parameter JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS to
JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -ms16m -mx32m
c) Start the installation again

3. Use the Oracle Universal Installer that is shipped with Oracle 9.0.1 or
higher.

Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) for RDBMS 8.1.x Hangs on Machines
with Pentium 4 Processors
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Versions Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oracle Universal Installer version 1.7.1.9.0 and earlier versions
(bundled with products in 8.1.X CD packs).

Platforms Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with
Sun JRE and Symantec JIT will encounter this problem. Windows NT,
Windows 2000,
and NetWare operating systems are confirmed to be affected.

Description
~~~~~~~~~~~

The Oracle Universal Installer hangs when installing Oracle 8.1.x Server

products on machines that use Sun JRE and Symantec JIT.

A special note specifically for the Windows platforms: OUI versions
earlier
than 1.7.1.9.0 will encounter this problem.

Likelihood of Occurrence
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Any Oracle Universal Installer 1.7.1.9.0 and earlier installation on a
platform
that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the Sun JRE and Symantec
Just in
Time Library (JIT) will encounter this problem.

Possible Symptoms
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The failure is manifested in these ways:
- The affected application simply terminates.
- The installer hangs, quits, dies or disappears.
- The hourglass appears, disappears and nothing else happens.

Workarounds
~~~~~~~~~~~

Workaround 1:
1. Obtain the OUI application (~17.5MBs) under patch number 1507768
in
Metalink:
a. Click Patches button
b. Enter 1507768 in the Patch Number field
c. Click Submit
d. Download the patch

2. Unzip the patch.

3. Unzip the contents to a directory (~20MBs).

4. Navigate to:

cdDisk1stageComponentsoracle.swd.jre1.1.7.301DataFilesExpandedjrewin32binsymcjit.dll

Rename symcjit.dll to symcjit.dll.old

5. Invoke the OUI executable from the following directory, and
install the
OUI to your hard disk:

cd .cdDisk1installwin32setup.exe6.

Use/Invoke this installed OUI from Start menu > Programs, to
install
Oracle 8.1.x and related products.

Workaround 2:
1. Create a temporary directory on your server.

2. Copy the entire contents of the Oracle RDBMS Server CD
to the temporary directory created in step 1.

3. Search the directory structure created in Step 1 for the
existence of
the filename symcjit.dll.

4. Rename each copy of the symcjit.dll to symcjit.old.

5. Run the setup.exe from the installwin32 directory and install
Oracle
8.1.x and related products.

Workaround 3:
If you continue to experience any of the symptoms after performing
either of
the workarounds above, follow these steps:

1. Copy the contents of the install directory to a temporary
directory on
your harddisk.

2. Search for all copies of the 'symcjit.dll' file, and rename them
to
symcjit.old'.

3. Go to the install directory and open the 'oraparam.ini' file
for
editing.
Please note this file is write-protected.

4. Change the JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS parameter to

JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -ms16m -mx32m

5. Save the oraparam.ini file.

6. Start the installation again.

Patches
~~~~~~~
Currently there is not a patched Installer available to deal with
this problem. One of the workarounds listed above must be used.
