I suggest you refer to the installation docs.  You should find everything you need there.

Thanks for fast reply .

 I read documentation for AIX but no mention about this point.

from the link above .

Note:
Because you must change the permissions of all of the parent directories of the CRS home directory after installing the software to grant write access only to the root user, the CRS home directory must not be a subdirectory of the Oracle base directory.



So I change permission after install to root ?

This doc is the generic for all unix platforms:
10g Release 1 (10.1) for AIX-Based Systems, Apple Mac OS X, hp HP-UX, hp Tru64 UNIX, Linux, Solaris Operating System, and Windows Platforms

>>So I change permission after install to root ?

I do not understand this comment.  Are you asking for the user to perform the install with?

If so, check the section form the link above:  Create Required UNIX Groups and User

They mention clearly should change during installation .So what after Installation ? change it to root .

create an Oracle Clusterware path. For example:

# mkdir -p  /u01/app
# chown -R crs:oinstall /u01

Same link you provided:

2.3 Overview of Groups and Users for Oracle Clusterware Installations
You must create the following group and user to install Oracle Clusterware:


If Oracle software is already installed on the system, then the existing Oracle Inventory group must be the primary group of the operating system user (oracle or crs) that you use to install Oracle Clusterware. Refer to Section 2.4.5.1, "Determining if an Oracle Software Owner User Exists" to identify an existing Oracle Inventory group.

•Oracle clusterware software owner user (typically, oracle, if you intend to create a single software owner user for all Oracle software, or crs, if you intend to create separate Oracle software owners.)

So clearly

 mkdir –p  /u01/app
chown –R crs:oinstall /u01/app


What confusing me I saw some instance owned but root ro /u01/app

As a general rule:  For anything Oracle, nothing should be owned by root except for maybe the startup/shutdown scripts in the RC directories or other files placed in 'root' only type folders.
