Dear experts,
I have installed Oracle RAC on VMWare Server. almost all the installation was okay but one configuration assistant at the end of installation of clusterware, but I kept on moving forward and I installed Oracle 10gr2 also. but when I reached at the step of creating databases for my cluster the setup told me that:
"Virtual IP addresses are not configured for the cluster nodes rac1 and rac2, run vipca to configure these virtual ip addresses before performing the "Create Database" operation."
so I ran the vipca as root user on both nodes and got the following error from both nodes:

/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/crs_1/jdk/jre/bin/java: error while loading shared libraries: libpthread.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

now please tell me what to do as it seems impossible to create database without configuring VIP.
what shall I do, shall I copy libpthread.so.0 file from net in one of my directories ? or what ? and where can I get this file from ?

You need to unset LD_ASSUME_KERNEL manually for all SLES 10 /RHEL 5 installations. Did you do that?
Other workaround that Oracle suggested is to install 10.2.0.4 patchset.

no I did not do that, and I think that you are talking about preinstallation tasks for RAC. but I have installed clusterware and Oracle for RAC. now the problem is that during clusterware installation, VIP could not be configured or vipca did not run. so now as I give the command:
vipca
to run the tool it gives me the error mentioed above. and its something about libpthread.so.0 file, some package issue ?

now you tell me what to do?

Though, the document talks only about SUSE, it should be applicable for RHEL also.

But wait,
You message initially said you were using RHEL 5.
I am not seeing it now. Or are my eyes deceiving me?
Can you confirm that you are using RHEL 5?

thanx the workaround was exactly what I was looking for but it did not run the tool(vipca) rather it gave the following message on terminal:

[main] [16:1:7:503] [Util.<init>:86] Util Instance created.
Insufficient privileges.
[main] [16:1:7:561] [VipCA.runApplication:2891] oracle.ops.vipca.VipCA.runApplication(VipCA.java:2853)
oracle.ops.vipca.VipCA.main(VipCA.java:3147)
Insufficient privileges.

its talking about some privileges. now what to do? one more thing when I try to run the tool as root user, nothing happens and after sometime the prompt reappears without any error, but when I ran it as oracle user it gave the error mentioned above.

Please read the documentation before attempting to do anything.
VIPCA is supposed to be run as root and not as Oracle user.
If you are manually invoking VIPCA you may need to set your DISPLAY properly from the root session (it is a gui tool).
If the crs installation is invoking the tool (through root.sh run as root), it would be run in background.
Use cluvfy to check pre/post setup.
If nothing works, start over again. Clean the CRS and reinstall.
