Okay, so I need import a full .dmp into a new (empty) db. I am not familiar with the tablespaces or users of the db to be imported. At all. I simply need to get it onto the PC for the db programmer. So, my questions are:

How do I import if I am not sure of the tablespaces or users necessary?

What are the sql commands to create the db?? (CREATE DATABASE "name") Can I do this without any parameters...and keep it from using default parameters?

Is it possible to simply import into a parameter-less db that I create?

I have a clean slate...new machine...newly installed oracle 8i...no other db in sight. Please help. Thank you so much.
