Ste, was there a prior thread? You can find information on using dbms_redefinition in the DBA Administrators manual (10g version)

The atler table move and alter index rebuild commands can probably be used instead. The choice may depend on if you want to perform the task online and on if you need to make any object structure changes at the same time.

If you MOVE a table you must also REBUILD the indexes on the table.

Additional information on dbms_redefinition can be found in the PL/SQL Packages and Types manual:
