moving a database

I need to move a database to a new machine; we are doing a hardware
upgrade. The system has the same OS, the same version of Oracle and
the same hard drive layout. Can I just shutdown the database on the
old machine and copy the pfile, control files, online log files, data
files and archived log files into the same paths they where on the old
system and startup the database or is there more to it?

Thanks
Larry

Yes you can, just remember to set up the correct environment variables.
