Copying an Oracle database from Solaris to NT

I have a 8 GB Oracle 8.1.7 database on Solaris. What is the best and simplest way to copy it to Windows NT or 2000?
The best way to copy the database would be using export/import. On the Solaris side, run a full export using the command:
exp sys/change_on_install file=full.dmp full=y

On the NT side, create the database and tablespaces (you can find out the size of the tablespaces from the source database by querying dba_data_files), then import the data using the command:
imp sys/change_on_insatll file=full.dmp full=y
