Your last statement is incorrect. Red Hat GFS folks are working with
Oracle to certify 10gR2 on GFS 6.1 on RHEL 4 in the near term; however,
GULM is the only supported lock manager for this certification. They
require 3 external nodes to the RAC cluster (none of the RAC nodes can
be a standy lock node, for example).
Red Hat told me this was at the insistence of Oracle. :(
