You also need another Linux box to run the Oracle VM Manager. This can be on top of an existing Red Hat or Oracle Linux server.
a) is it mandatory to have Oracle VM Server...I think it is trying to install another linux ....in my case, i have already working linux environment, why again do i need to install another linux environment on top? Cant i directly install Oracle VM manager on top of my existing Redhat Linux and deploy PSHCM templates after that?
If no (i.e Oracle VM Server needs to be installed before VM Manager), With a iso image downloaded from oracle, how to install Oracle VM server on my existing Redhat linux ? (pls give steps). How many partitions do i need to make etc?You cannot install Oracle VM Server on top of anything else. It is a bare-metal operating system that replaces whatever is installed.
b) Cant i use any softwares like Virtual box or VM ware to open the PS-HCM images ?No. The PeopleSoft templates are designed for Oracle VM Server and do not work under VirtualBox.
c) Once VM Server is installed, (ie. it creates a new linux Os evniroment) ....then VM Manager needs to be installed on that new linux os enviroment or my existing Redhat linux environment?It is not a new Linux OS environment, it's a bare-metal hypervisor that happens to run a Linux management domain. The VM Manager needs to be installed on another Linux server running either Oracle or Red Hat linux. You need at least two machines for this.
d) Once VM manager is installed, we need to deploy the PS HCM templates. I think it will create a virtual machine... how much hard disk space / RAM we need to give for the virtual disk for db template and apps template?This is already defined by the template itself. It already has the hard disks and RAM configured.

But is it possible to install Oracle VM Server on Windows server 2008..
