Hi,
 A physical stand by can be done for oracle 10g in the same server.

If and only the archiving is not enabled then you can start the mount ,
You can use any backup copy of the primary database to create the physical standby database--for this  you use the Recovery Manager utility (RMAN).

Pinkuray provides a good start, but your brevity suggests there might be more going on.  Please say more.
I could easily see value in having a cloned ORACLE_HOME to live test patches, but I will be interested in learning how such an arrangement adds value.  At best, one might shift to separate physical drives in a non-RAID environment....  Curious.

Physically Data Guard (former Standby DB) could be installed on the same server.

Logically it is nonsence and could be done only for testing purposes. If you Server is captured,
damaged by fire, flood or other disaster (or even plain and simple Hard Disk damage!!!!) you will loose the Primary and the Data Guard.
Even the 'only advantage' - the usage the Data Guard for reporting will not work because the load of the server.
Also two running instances will make high load of the server machine.

OK, let us think that you will dp experiments ...

Clone the database and in mount mode rename the location of all files - .dbf, control

Make a copy for standby of the control file.

Put the Primary DB in archivelog mode

Create a second destination of the Archived Logs - the standby DB

More details could be find in Data Guard manual of 10g

Thanks to everyone.
It is just for testing purposes and I agree with schwertner that it is not useful but it can be done on 10g but it is easy on different physical servers.
