I would create the table on the oracle server, and with a linked server insert into that table.
alternative would be to export the sql server table into a file that you would load with the oracle loader for example, but usually much more work.
a third option is the reverse of the linked server (pushing from sql server to oracle), using the heterogeneous services create a dblink to the sql server database, then pulling the data from there.
This will take a lot of planning and work because all the triggers are not the same between SQL and ORACLE. Moving the data is one thing getting everything to run after you import is another. My advise is to  stick with SQL because Oracle has a lot more overhead.

An ideal tool for this comes for free with SQL Server and is called Integration Services (SSIS).  You can use this to extract data from your SQL Server source and move it to an Oracle destination.  Although it may not be very straightforward, if you persist you've learned the usage of a very powerful tool.

Some good info on loading data into Oracle can be found here:

And this is a good resource on SSIS connectivity in general:
