Upgrading Oracle 11g database server from RHEL 5.4 to 5.8

My team has been told that we need to start planning on upgrading our Oracle 11g database server from Red Hat Enterprise Linux v5.4 to 5.8. Can anybody provide me a list of high-level Oracle specific tasks we need to accomplish when we upgrade the operating system? I am worried that our admins and DBA don't have a full understanding of how this OS upgrade will impact Oracle. Fortunately, we will upgrade our test server first, but I would like to hear from experienced architects and admins that have done the upgrade in the past. Thanks in advance for your help.
