The Oracle SQL Reference Guide can help you out quite a bit. In SQL*Plus, you will just use a SQL statement to create the table. Once you have signed on to SQL*Plus, you can issue a command similar to the following:
CREATE TABLE my_new_table ( column1 NUMBER, my_column VARCHAR2(30), your_col CHAR(12));The above command just shows some of the basics. There are a lot more options as the documentation will show you. You can also use Oracle's Enterprise Manager for a GUI tool that can help you create tables.
