Default move database to another server

I have an ora 8.1.7 database on a windows server and need to move it onto another server. Can I shutdown the database, make a cold backup of the oradata directory, copy the entire contents onto the new server and restart it....also knowing to change the init file with the new server name and new instance name? Or are there any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance..
