Are you sure you are trying to install a correct version? It seems this is a version for NT or W2K but not W2003 server.
Are you sure you gave a correct path when oui asked you for?
Are you sure you are trying to install Oracle and not a patchset?

On Windows, when you install Oracle (at least for the version I installed, Oracle ^^), the environment variables are not set.
What often happens in that case is that the ORACLE_HOME definition is missing. You have to go to the System window and choose "SET ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES". There you'll have to set ORACLE_HOME to your "Oracle_home" directory + add the Opatch complete path (inside the oracle home path) in the "PATH" variable. Usually it will be "$ORACLE_HOME/Opatch".
Then, to apply the patch, open a command prompt from the startup menu and go to the patch directory. (using cd blablabla).
from there use the following command line:
"opatch apply"

This should work if the version of your patch fits the version installed of course !
