We've found Oracle 9i to behave pretty well on Server 2003. We've patched both 8i an 9i to higher versions on a 2003 server and all patches went off without a hitch.

Having said that though, always make sure you FULLY READ Oracle's patch instructions and readme's because they really like to hide gotchas in there.
