IMP-00000: Import terminated unsuccessfully
Did you FTP the file to another server? If so, make sure that you FTP explictily in Binary mode. If you FTP and do an ASCII mode transport, then you will get this error.
Another thing you can try is to export with the 9.2.0 exp utility. If
the 8i database is on a remote server, create a TNS alias to that
database then export with "userid=system@tns_alias".
