Howard, you can't use RMAN to backup a file system. Ideally, if any, the only files being written to under ORACLE_HOME will be your dump files. "show parameter dump" will confirm whether this is the case or not. As long as there are no database files (data files, redo etc) under ORACLE_HOME, I'd look into using the "xcopy" command from the command prompt.
