you would have an easier time installing Oracle RDBMS on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5
It might be easier to install Virtualbox (free download from http://www.virtualbox.org) on your Win XP machine, create a Linux VM, download and install OEL (free download from http://linux.oracle.com) in the Linux VM, then install 11gR2 in OEL. This assumes you have a Windows machine with beefy processor and RAM
