Refere to the doc. http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e22489/storage.htm
I appreciate the response. But I have been reading the document and can't find what I'm doing wrong.
I changed the command to
/usr/sbin/oracleasm createdisk ASM1 /dev/sdb
Device "/dev/sdb" is not a partition
however I know its a partition because I have run fdisk. but I am not seeing it mounted.

I rand fdisk -l and found that the partion label was assigned as /dev/sdb1.
After resubmitting the command it worked.
Thank you anyways.

Don't use asmLib. Use udev rules list instead. asmLib is not available from RHEL 6 anway.
You haven't mentioned GI, RDMS versions and what Platform you are in !
it looks like you have not installed all 3 rpms needed for ASMLIB.
You need the asmlib itself, the corresponding kernel module for asmlib (included in the UEK kernels) and the asm support package.
# rpm -qa|grep oracleasm
# uname -a
thanks for all the help. I figured my problem was only syntax. But I do have a new problem relating to recognizing my asm disks that were created.
And I have been reading a bit about udev, but I don't understand how to use it and correct my problems in this instance.
I'm using Oracle Linux 5u7
here is my other question
Grid runInstall can't find candidate disks
