10G RAC on Solaris looking for comments and suggestions

We are looking into going to RAC on 10G on Solaris. We have EMC SAN on the back end.  

I am a newbie to Rac so any pointers would be appreciated. Like should we use ASM (not sure what that buys us).  

We have been on a 8i standby database but want to move towards no downtime and loadbalancing.  

We have bursts of activity which I think the load balancing would help and the 10G priority would help with processing the jobs.  

But I have seem some comments on this list where RAC can actually cause downtime. We don't want to spend the extra money  

on Rac if it actually is going to give us more headaches and cause us more downtime.  

Are their things to avoid, definate must dos....  

any comments, suggestions appreciated. I read the install instructions and things seems pretty straightforwards but .... there are always some leaps of faith in the Oracle docs.
