You cannot restore a database backup to another OS platform. Probably the two best options are to use Oracle's export/import utilities to copy the database, or to use RMAN to create a duplicate database on the new platform for you. Details are in the Oracle Utilities Guide or the Backup and Recovery Guide, respectively.
