I doubt if you can directly upgrade to 11g. you probably need to upgrade your 8i db to 9i or 10g then you need to upgrade to 11g.
ref : http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/upgrade/best-practices-for-upgrading-11gr2-174946.pdf --[Page 45]
one of the option you can consider is : install 11g software and create new 11g database then exp your 8i database and import it into your 11g database.
