Do you need to create database first before creating ASM?

Sun Solaris 10, Oracle 11gr2 x86


How are you doing?  I am trying to build a test system.  I never build ASM before.  Does anybody know if I need to install database first then Migrating to ASM?  The other problem I am having is that I only have a Raw disk.  I have one disk for root and oracle and the other one for Raw disk for ASM.  Do you know it's possible to build ASM on 1 raw disk?  Please tell me the steps I need to set this up or point me to the right documents.


Thank  You,
