If you only have a few tables to do then manually mapping the columns is usually easy in the absense of LOB, long, and nvarchar columns.

varchar2 ==> varchar
date ==> datetime
number ==> integer, float, decimal, money, etc ... depending on number value precision, scale, and value range.

CLOB and Long would likely text columns.

But if you know Oracle and PL/SQL these are far superior products to SQL Server 2K or 5K and T-SQL.
