You should be able to shutdown the Oracle database on the unix server and copy the files to the Windows XP server (probably via FTP) then attach the database to the Oracle database installed on your workstation.
If you can't shutdown the Oracle database then do a backup of the database and restore it on your machine.
Or you can script out the objects in the Oracle Tools or via Toad for Oracle.
You will need fairly high end rights to the Oracle database on the Unix server to do any of this.
