    You can't. There is no list of database instances available (except maybe inside a RAC environment).

    But I assume you are coming from a SQL Server background. A SQL Server "database" usually maps to an Oracle user. To get a list of all users in the database issue a SELECT * FROM all_users.

    A detailed description of all system views is available here

    On *nix flavor servers you could find out the database "instances" by looking at:

    1) oratab file in /etc or /var/opt/oracle directories (if the file has been updated).
    -- or --
    2) issue the following command:

    ps -ef|grep smon
