Did this command run successfully in the past, and now it it is giving the error?  Or, are you trying to get this to work for the first time?  Are you aware that Oracle8i has been unsupported for many years?  Do you have the option of upgrading to Oracle11?

Rman was new in Oracle8i and it had a number of problems then.  In later versions of Oracle it works better.
