Error creating listener on new RAC node

I am getting my feet wet with RAC.  Platform is Oracle 10g R2 on Windows
2000.  I¹ve setup a 1-node test cluster, and now I¹m attempting to add a
second node. However, when I try to create the listener on the new node,
netca fails with the error below:

ServiceAliasException: Could not initialize Service Alias: TNS-04404: no
error
caused by: oracle.net.config.ConfigException: TNS-04414: File error
caused by: TNS-04612: Null RHS for "TCORE1.PCCI.EDU"

"TCORE1" is the database instance on the first node.  Following the
instructions given in every piece of documentation I¹ve read so far, I ran
netca on the new node, did a cluster configuration, and chose only the new
node from the list.  Thinking that something on node 1 might be causing the
problem, I even dropped the listener from that node and attempted to create
both at once from node 1, with the same results.  So now I¹m getting the
error on both nodes.

I was able to setup and started the listeners manually, but I don¹t know how
to register them with the clusterware so they can be controlled via srvctl.
I¹ve got a TAR ? sorry, SR ? submitted to Oracle Support, but I was
wondering if anyone in the Oracle community has seen this error and/or has
an idea as to what I can do about it.
