If my dump you mean the result of an export (exp or expdp) then since both instances are at 10g then you should have no problem.

It appears from your post that you are using a import to get the data into 10g on machine A so you should be able to use the same source file to get the data into 10g on machine B without having to load machine A and then re-export.

You might also be able to use the transportable tablespace method of moving the data. Look at v$transportable_platform to see if transport between the two environments is supported (10g+).
