ORA-01503: Create controlfile failed

Hi !
I am trying to install oracle 9i Standard edition on a windows 2000
SP4 machine. I get through the entire installation up to running the
Database Configuration Assistant.
While it tries to make the database, it gets to the "Creating and
Oracle instance" stage, and then the errors start. I get:

ORA-00205: error in identifying control file. check alertlog for more

I'm installing a vanilla database, and I didn't change any of the
configuration parameters, didn't unselect any of the default options
to install, and I've tried using several different DB names, SIDs,
etc. Same errors every time.

I was logged on as the administrator. The ORACLE_HOME directories had
administrator and system, full control permissions. Free Disk space is
140 GB. I'm using the "dedicated server" option versus the "shared
server" mode.
I even tried the "Install software only option" and then started the
Database configuration manager to make a new database, but still get
the same error in the "Creating and starting Oracle instance" stage.

The alert.ocrl.log is below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
