I am trying to install the Oracle 9.2 stand alone database software on my lap top for testing purposes.

After the install it asks for host name, port number, sid and Net Service Name.

Not sure exactly what it should be because when I fill them in and type in my user name and password I get an error message saying no TNS name found.
