DBCA fails on Windows ME

P: n/a
I am a new Oracle user. I am trying to install Oracle 9i Personal
Edition on Windows ME; however, I am getting the following error
during the installation:
Oracle Database Configuration Assistant failed during install. Error
message:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
com/inprise/vbroker/CORBA/ObjectException in thread "main"
at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.backend.Host.<init>( Host.java:437)
at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.ui.UIHost.<init>(UIH ost.java:151)
at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.ui.ProgressOnlyHost. <init>(ProgressOnlyHost.java:72)
at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca.getHost(Dbca.ja va:123)
at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca.execute(Dbca.ja va:82)
at oracle.sysman.assistants.dbca.Dbca.main(Dbca.java: 144)

I realize that Oracle does not support Oracle 9i under Windows ME, so
I searched the internet for the solution and found the following:
"After the initial installation, run Universal installer again and
install the Corba
stuff, then re-run the database config assistant again." Can somebody
explain in more details what is "Corba stuff" (ie. how do I identify
it during the install process?) Also, how do I re-run the DBCA again?

I have also found the following solution:
"#EM_CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/classes:$JLIB_DIR/$EMBASE_JAR
EM_CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/classes:$ORACLE_HOME/oem_webstage:$JLIB_DIR/$EMBASE_JAR".
Can somebody explain what is going on here?

Thank you in advance.

You are installing Oracle on a platform for which it was never
certified. It may work or it may not. Anyway: you are on your own,as
nobody using Oracle on Me will be supported by Oracle.

I am aware that Oracle does not support Oracle 9i on Windows ME, so if
anybody knows a workaround on this problem I would appreciate help.
