unable to set sga_max_size parameter value

Hi experts,

To tune the OID11g the DB parameter recommendation is :

sga_target Minimum 60% of RAM
sga_max_size Minimum 60% of RAM
db_cache_size Minimum 60% of RAM

So what is RAM that the RAM size on the linux BOX which is 8 GB in my case
or RAM size assigned to Oracle DB?

If I take RAM size 8 GB I am not able to modify the parameter. I am getting below error:

SQL> alter system set sga_max_size=4916M scope=both;
alter system set sga_max_size=4916M scope=both
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-02095: specified initialization parameter cannot be modified

how to check that total memory assigned to Oracle DB?

Please let me know the correct way to set these param, any help apprecited.
