As well, if you attended IOUG Live! 2005 in May, you can download Richmond Shee's paper entitled "Pre-Oracle10g Data Migration to Linux Best Practices Using Export/Import" from the IOUG Web site. His paper and presentation are focused on tuning the import process so that the migration takes less time. It was a great presentation and his paper may prove quite helpful to you.
