I am attempting to in essence to clone an active database without taking it down and renaming the copy to something else. Can you describe the steps to do this?
I have been told to use the rman duplicate command which I have not used before. Even before that do I need to copy files to another directory? Please assist. Thanks!

Best place to start is in the docs:
24 Duplicating a Database
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/backup.112/e10642/rcmdupdb.htm#BRADV010

I read through the articles you posted which are goood but taking a step back Im not sure what I need to do at the Linux level. Do I need to create a new oracle home for the copied database or just copy the oracle home directory of the source database and rename it for the copy.

Are you staying on the same server or copying the database to a server with no oracle products installed?
