Hi Manoj.

Yes you can install 8i EE on W2k.

The sid and instance name are the same and is the unique name for the database within the same machine. The global database name is as its name suggests, a unique name globally, i.e. the SID plus Domain, e.g. mySID.myserver.com The service name is the name used when connecting over SQL*Net, when the database is started the service name is registered with the listener and is defined in the TNSNAMES.ORA file to enable a client to connect to the right database.

not sure about your last question. Hope this helps.
