    it looks like Oracle is not able to find the controlfiles that you have
    listed in the initialization file ...

    Ensure that the controlfiles exists and the path is corrected defined
    in the INITxxx.ORA file.

    use svrmgr30 (I believe that what it was...) and try to startup the
    database and maybe you'll get a better error message ...
