I found a way!

C:\sqlplus /nolog
SQL>connect internal
SQL>connect / as sysdba
SQL>connect sys/pass as sysdba

then issue:

SQL>shutdown immediate
svrmgrl is not supported since 9i.
In Oracle 9 you'll need to use the third way of connecting, as the "internal" account doesn't exist anymore.  Then you can use "startup" to start the database :)  There is no svrmgrl in Oracle 9+, they've just consolidated everything into SQL*Plus
