ASM Setup Single Instance

Would like to simulate ASM single instance installation on AIX 5.3.

To setup disks
To install ASM instance on seperate Oracle Home
To install Oracle Instance to use ASM

Could you please provide/explain details.
Hope its clear enough.

ASM can work without RAC => stand alone

Just follow the doc :

From installer specify ASM instance.

Like to make further comment :

As a test : I have created 2 ORACLE HOME's
One for ASM binary install and the other for normal oracle binary install.

My Filesystems :
/APPLICATION/database/oracle/11.2.0   ---- Unix User : orasdba:dba   and Oracle Sid = ORCL
/APPLICATION/database/oracle/ASM      ---- Unix User : oraasm:dba   and Asm Sid = +ASM

Is this right ?

+ASM should be created BEFORE ORCL in order this last one should be able to use ASM diskgroup.

I do not mean to be rude ,, but answers like this I can find through "Google" - I was hoping for more detail - a break down of detail. For example what should my ASM .profile look like and is there specific sotfware for ASM(how do I start) - Is there someone that can provide a more detailed breakdown - instead of yes/no answers and refer me to documentation that I have already seen on the internet through Google.
I don't asnwer to "do my job for me" questions. So if you don't have a PRECISE issue/question, you'll only get vague awnsers.
Then, if you have already a procedure, test it and learn from it.
