Problem installing Oracle 9i on XP

I am trying to install Oracle 9i (9.2.0.1, 32 bit) on Windows XP Pro
(version 2002, SP 1, Intel P3), but I get an error claiming that Oracle
requires Service Pack 1 or greater, which it thinks my system does not have.
In reality, my system does have service pack 1 and the install doesn't seem
to recognize that. I even tried installing Service Pack 1a, with no
difference.

How can I convince the Oracle install that I do have service pack 1?

Any ideas?

I followed up on this, but this really doesn't offer any help. According
to the table, there is no minimum service pack number for Oracle 9.2.0.1.
The only other interesting information here was that there is a list of
unsupported Oracle features for XP, but all I'm trying to install is the
database.

Any other suggestions?

Jason
