    First question. Why? That version is from around (if I recall correctly) the year 2000, and would only install on 32 bit machines of the time.

    It has been a looooongggg time deprecated version.

    The only way to get hold of (legitimate) old versions of Oracle, if you don't have some old disks lying around (I think I used to have an old 8i CD lying around several years ago that got turned into a drinks mat), would be to contact Oracle support (support.oracle.com) and see if they can supply it, but I think even they would be hard pushed to provide that version now. Don't trust anywhere other than Oracle to "download" a copy as it would likely contain malicious software.
