This is more of a WinDoze question, maybe you should post it in the corresponding M$ forum.

Please note, fail safe (oracle clustering) and windows clustering are two different things.

Here are some basic steps to follow:
1. Install your MSCS to create your Windows cluster
2. Install the the Oracle binaries (program) on both nodes (servers, this is assuming a basic 2 server cluster)
3. Create the database from one node on the shared disc in the cluster (SAN, NAS, what ever you've chosen for your shared disc in the cluster)
4. Now you will install Oracle's Fail Safe on each cluster in the node
5. Now configure the Oracle Fail Safe manager (Database, TNS, LIstener)

Viola!  You have a clustered solution.
