Because of circumstances that would take way too long to explain, I've restored via tape /usr/local/oracle to a different (Linux) server. When I log in as sysdba and type 'startup,' I receive this error message:

SQL> startup
ORACLE instance started.

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kcratr1_lostwrt], [], 
[], [], [], [], [], []

I got a verification that the data was backed up on the tape and I received a verification that the files were restored okay from the same tape.

Any help you can offer in helping me get things up and running would be greatly appreciated.
