I am using Red Hat Enterprise Linux - 32 bit on intel processor machine
The Kernel details are

To create database with ASM filesystem I have download following packages from

from section Drivers for kernel 2.6.18-92.el5

1) oracleasm-support-2.1.3-1.el5.i386.rpm 
2) oracleasmlib-2.0.4-1.el5.i386.rpm 
3) oracleasm-2.6.18-92.el5-2.0.5-1.el5.i686.rpm 

I want to know if these are correct packages for my installation?

I am asking this since the output for the command
'/etc/init.d/oracleasm configure' always finishes with

Default user to own the driver interface []: oracle
  Default group to own the driver interface []: dba
  Start Oracle ASM library driver on boot (y/n) [n]: y
  Fix permissions of Oracle ASM disks on boot (y/n) [y]: y
  Writing Oracle ASM library driver configuration            [  OK  ]
  Creating /dev/oracleasm mount point                        [  OK  ]

and does not display following output as mentioned in the documents
  Loading module "oracleasm"                                 [  OK  ]
  Mounting ASMlib driver filesystem                          [  OK  ]
  Scanning system for ASM disks                              [  OK  ]

Thanks and Regards,
