Can I install Oracle on Windows without being an administrator?

I would like to install Oracle database (11g) on my Windows XP development workstation at work, but I am not an Administrator on the machine, nor do I have access to the "Services" control panel applet. I am able to install applications to any directory, though.

Is it going to be possible to install Oracle database (any edition) on my machine?

You'll need an admin to install Oracle for you. Or, get a VM and be your own local admin. or install it at home - Oracle has a personal edition that is 100% free.
