I'm trying to install 10gr2 RAC on REDHAT 5.8. I'm using SAN multipathing everything is correctly configured and i also configured the raw binding using rawdevices script, then used UDEV to set the permissions correctly for the raw devices upon restart.

Kindly use only multipathing, put permission for disks in rc.local file.
