Help with cloning a database

I took a trace file and datafiles copy from Oracle 9i, Windows 2000 server. I installed Windows 2003 and Oracle 10g in another machine with a different database. Can you tell me how to clone the database?

From reading your question, it looks like you are attempting to copy an Oracle 9i database on a Windows 2000 server to an existing Oracle 10g database on a Windows 2003 server. Because you already have a pre-existing 10g database, the best way to do this is to export the 9i database and then import it into the existing 10g database on the other server. Also, because you are going from a 9i database to a 10g database, you can't just physically copy the database over. If you choose this route, you will have to essentially upgrade the database to 10g before it is usable.
