I have finished all per-requisites of RAC configuration on my Windows server 2008.
Now i have started grid installation when i run sh runInstaller desktop screen flickers where the Next and Cancel Button appears.
Top page looks ok. But the bottom page does t even allow me click on buttons i am not sure if its something with the CENTOS5.
If i have a asked a dumb question i am sorry about that.

it was problem with the screen resolution settings. It was my mistake to avoid guestaddtions part of my installation task.
After doing that it works fine so OS is not a problem here.

huh tat s a valid point but still i found few articles on RAC implementation with CentOS as Operating system.
Anyways i will see if i can get RHEL5.5 but still i cannot use yum and directly install the records because it might ask for registration.You could use Oracle Linux. Fully RH compatible. Purchase price is US$0.00. Their free public yum server requires no registration. The only thing you pay actual money for is if you want a support contract, to allow you to actually open a service request.
