Can you give me the command prompt to import and export a dump file from Windows 2003 to Sun Solaris?

There are many options to your export and import utilities. Basically, to perform a full export of your entire database, do the following:
exp userid=system/manager file=my_dump.dmp 
log=my_dump.log full=y
Once you have the dump file, FTP the file in BINARY mode to your new database server. Then import the dump file's contents as follows:
imp userid=system/manager file=my_dump.dmp 
log=imp.log full=y
For more options for these utilities, refer to the Oracle Utilities Guide for your version.
