Why don't you ask why the previous steps are required?
It is required because it is required.
If you want to know what it does just read it.

Hi,

I read the script but not able to understand as why It required for installation.

Even I searched metalink, but not happy enough as why its required.

Is there is any docs for the same?

When installing Oracle, some actions, which need to be performed as root, are recorded in a shell script called root.sh. This script is written in the orainst directory. Apply the following patch to root.sh, to have it use to proper location of chown or alternatively run the script under a Linux native shell.

When you do not install Oracle from CD, you can patch the source for root.sh. It is called rthd.sh and is located in the orainst directory in the source tree.
