So in this post i will be installing the 22.214.171.124. Grid Software on RHEL 5u4.
We have configured our disk to be able to make it available for ASM.
[root@test ~]# /usr/sbin/oracleasm scandisks
Reloading disk partitions: done
Cleaning any stale ASM disks…
Scanning system for ASM disks…
[root@test ~]# /usr/sbin/oracleasm listdisks
I configured three ASM Disk.
Now go to the Grid Software Directory and start the installation:
[oracle@test grid]$ pwd
[oracle@test grid]$ ls -lrt

Below screen will come up and we need to put up the details accordingly:
Select the disks as per normal redundancy. Name of the Disk Group is DATA. This failure group contains 3 Disks in it.
Make sure grid home directory is created before you give below. It may throw a message that this GRID is not a part of ORACLE_BASE. In my case it did come reason being I had two version of Oracle Installed.
