Below is the simple description of Cluster ware and GI.
Cluster ware :: It was used in 10g Cluster installation and it does not include ASM.
Grid Infrastructure - GI :: Since 11g the cluster ware is bundled with ASM and comes with oracle Restart.
This complete Bundle is called as Grid infrastructure.
Obviously the new version will have enhanced features so its better to use 11g Grid infrastructure.
The ASM also supports Cluster File system in 11g.
Ok So the GI is the only software which I should be using for 11g RAC.
I will start installing it but do you we have any documented procedure for installing the same on Oracle Linux ?
If yes could you help me with the document?
Doc link posted in my reply above - scroll up to the top and click on the "Contents" link on top right

Yes You should go for Grid Infrastructure for 11g RAC.
The Oracle documentation will provide you the complete installation steps Grid Infrastructure Installation.
All the Oracle 11g DB installation guides can be found in installation section on below link.
Thanks I will check both the documents.
