You will have to install Oracle software on your new server. Then precreate any tablespaces you'll need. Finally, use export and import to move your database. Perform a full export of your source database as follows:
exp userid=system/manager file=my_full_db.dmp full=y
FTP the dump file in binary mode to your destination server, then import the entire dump file as follows:
imp userid=system/manager file=my_full_db.dmp full=y
That should complete your move.
