Please read the Concepts, and the Installation Notes for the upgrade, as Mike suggests.  The Oracle documentation is very clear, except for how you will need to set up a X-window for your particular environment.  You might read up on Cygwin for that.

Now, it isn't clear from your brief comment whether the source database is already using ASM, or is that part of the upgrade?

Thanks it may take a long time for me to go thru the Installation guide.
We already are using ASM, and have to upgrade it too this week , so I am looking for steps.

The Oracle Installation Guide IS "the steps" -- that's what I'm trying to communicate.  My runtime screen shots have naming convention particular to our environment, but are otherwise similar to what Oracle provides.
