I would say there aren't a lot of BIG differences, but a bunch of small ones.

Maybe this will help:
Comparison of SQL Server 2000 and Oracle 9i
http://www.mssqlcity.com/Articles/Compare/sql_server_vs_oracle.htm

One thing you may hit right away is the name length difference (details also in above article) but they are shorter than in SQL.

Make sure you don't use any functionality native to MS SQL, like system stored procedures, functions etc.

I think you'll be in for a lot of changes when you switch over, unless you used only standard SQL...
