Backing up files on Oracle 8.0.5

I'm using Oracle 8.0.5... is it possible to back up files using this version with some Oracle software? I'm using...

NT Server and ArcServe 2000, which don't allow it. I'm wondering if there is any Oracle-native software that will.

I used Veritas BackUp exe in the past to back up files from the 8.0.5 Oracle database. The software used a shutdown and startup script, and between it copied all database files to a tape. To backup a database using Oracle-native tools, you can make your own backup scripts using th BACKUP DATABASE command.
