So this error seems to be in oracle net configuration set up..I would let the error remain and proceed with the installation and then configure oracle networking later..this is just by copying the tnsnames.ora in <oracle-home>/network/admin directory...so try going ahead wiht the installation with this error and post what is the last message you get? - Does it say installation successuly with some components failed or something similar? if so then you are in good shape...
another point..not directly related to this..why are you playing with oracle 8 in the days of oracle 10g?

Oracle 8i is NOT certified with MS Windows XP. Although people have successfully installed 8i on XP, maybe your example shows that, well, something isn't right. I'm sorry, but I wouldn't know how to help you. Perhaps you should rather download and install (free) Oracle 10g Express Edition, which certainly is certified with XP.
