              Do NOT use a LVM for creating ASM devices. They should be RAW devices, the partition should be the ENTIRE disk minus the first 1M (start at cylinder 2). Also do NOT use ASMLib - it is being retired and will not be available for future versions of Linux. Get a copy of "Automatic Storage Management - Under-the-Hood - a Practical Deployment Guide. It does reference ASMLib - but it is not necessary.
