I performed a SE RAC install with ASM (obviously) on a two node SunOS5.10 cluster. Installation was done with the same media as every other RAC I've done (the one I got from edelivery). The database supported a bank and as far as I know they haven't had any troubles with it whatsoever. Licensing costs are greatly reduced with SE RAC (since no actual RAC license is required), however cpu count is limited (by SE license).

Install process is exactly the same as EE, except you mark the SE radio button in one of the first screens. Remember to perform an 'advanced' installation, otherwise you won't get the option.
