I want to install Oracle RAC on solaris 10, using ASM but I am new in it...

So I want to mount /u0 directory on the disk volume /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s2

1) I have created /u0 directory by root user like this:

# mkdir /u0

2) I've added the following entries in .vsftab file:

 /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s2   /dev/rdsk/c2t0d0s2  /u0    ufs    2      yes    -

For to make file system to mount automatically.

3) Then I have typed the following command, for to mount directory now:

mount /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s2 /u0

Am I right???? Please, give me some advice how to mount directory on solaris and what steps should I make for to install oracle RAC on this system.

P.S. Step 3 gives me the following error:

mount: /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s2 or /u0, no such file or directory

P.S2 Which Oracle should I download for to install RAC?

1.) Check if Disk /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s2 exists you can use the format command to check 2.) If yes, does it have a ufs file system ? You can refer to
