>i got an oracle9i vendor msi
Er....I don't think so! Since the dawn of time, Oracle have used their own, Java-authored installer, the so-called Oracle Universal Installer (OUI).

I'm afraid you're stuck with the dual locations (by default, 'C:\Oracle' and 'C:\Program Files\Oracle'). Given the question and your lack of experience, I would counsel you to wrap the OUI either in script or in an MSI.
