Why are you installing 8i?
It's obsolete, and very nearly out of any support at all. Plus, a bit of digging on Metalink turned up the XP Configuration support note 161546.1, which points out that 8.1.7 server isn't certified on windows XP at all, so there's no guarantee that it will install, or that it will work properly if it does install.

If I were you, I'd use Oracle 10 R2 instead.
