howto reinitialize database after copying control and dbf files

Going on a trip and want to copy my 10.2.0.3 database (sid: db05) to an external hard drive. I have oracle 10.2.0.3.0 installed on my laptop's C: drive. The database is too big for the laptop so I copied the data files to an external E: drive. Originally the database and files were on a G: drive. I also copied the initdb05.ora file from the /database directory to C:/oracle/database. I have already changed the paths in that file to correctly represent the new location E:/db05.

Now I just need help with the correct steps to take to mount the data and create the database service/instance etc... I know I'll have to probably run "alter system rename...." for all the data/log/control files.

Thank you!!

If you have all the datafiles, this is, a fairly easy way to recreate it on a different machine and different storage.

backup controlfile to trace,

edit the trace script
change "REUSE" to "SET" and change "NORESETLOGS" to "RESETLOGS"
change the file paths

run the script
restore database until cancel using backup controlfile;
alter database open resetlogs;
