The SYS user never exports even with full=y. I think your concern is what happens to the SYSTEM user when it is being imported into the 10g database. If nothing happens then you are thinking that full=y would be easier but you have to resolve that conflict first.
I know I’m re-phrasing the question for the list and they can also respond. If so, my response would be to use expdp (10g datapump) to export the 8i database, and then impdp with the new ‘exclude’ option and exclude SYSTEM.
I have not done this exact scenario so you should stay tuned for other comments to this method.

Why would you want to do an exp with full=Y?
I would simply recreate any scripts to create local roles and users. Include any privs assigned to each user in the recreate scripts.
Run these scripts to create the roles and users. Export and import each schema individually. Export with Oracle 8 and Import with Oracle 10.
Resolve any problems. Should be a snap.
You don’t say how big your database is and this may be a deciding factor in how you do this.
Hope this helps.

It doesnt seem to say anywhere that i can export the whole 8i database with full=y (including sys and system users) and then import into 10g using full=y(including sys and system)

Oracle has the Oracle Database Upgrade Guide. In this the method is mentioned. See http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14238/preup.htm#i694345. Start reading from the paragraph Export/Import

Onderwerp: Oracle8i to 10g upgrade using exp and imp
I would like to know any metalink note or Oracle documentation link which spells out that i can do exp full=y on 8i database and imp full=y into 10g database.
I searched this but unable to locate that this is a a supported method for upgrading from 8i to 10g
