You may as well use server edition, even though you should just be able to perform a base install without any extras

Ubuntu is not supported by oracle. I doubt that you will lucky with the clusterware installation. You may try CentOS but it really has a small problem. During install 11gR2, an error said that AOCFS is not supported in CentOS...something like that! Issue solution read here But I recommend you that you use Oracle Enterprise Linux. It's free and you may buy support from Oracle. Or you may buy RHEL.
