If you are running at least 10g you can use the drop database command. You can find an example here.

I'm using oracle 9 db.. if not drop database command, can i delete the files manually and expect it to be dropped? –  raj Apr 23 '10 at 6:20
    
Yes. That is all any process is going to do. They just have how to find all the files build in to dbca and "drop database". By definition an oracle database is the files(data files,temp files,redo logs,control files). –  Todd Pierce Apr 24 '10 at 7:55
