I have a database I need restored from a tape backup that contains all of the datafiles.  I normally use RMAN to do this through the GUI but thats not an option in this case, its been a few years since I had to do it through the command prompts.  If I remember correctly, I have to shutdown the database, copy the files, recover the database then then open it.  This is on a SUN server running Solaris 9.  I have the following datafiles:

the /u02/oradata/MYDB/example01.dbf file is currently and I want to keep it that way.
What would my script look like to do this?  To I need to close the database first?
