Hi,
It's right that:We must have clustered Operating System for using Of RAC Database in oracle(this means that RAC Database only work On Cluster OS or not?)

Thanks For Your Help

Partially true.
You can use OCFS or regular raw disks.

Yes - You first need a cluster , with shared storage to install RAC. For linux on 9i oracle provides the cluster manager oracm. For 10g it provides it's own cluster ware ( CRS ) for all platforms, so you can use just this CRS or alongside vendor cluster ware such as sun cluster or vcs etc. The shared storage is need for quorum , voting , ocr depending on the version that you are using and also for datafiles so that the nodes in the cluster can access them .. OCFS is a cfs solution from oracle for linux and windows .. similar solutions exist from solaris and veritas etc or you can use SAN , NFS for shared storage ..

Hope this helps
