I'd vote for OEL 5.Highest with the UEK. I.E. not 6 yet and get the optimized 
for Oracle kernel. If you will end up running a specific version get that one 
instead.

Anyone have recommendation for a flavor of Linux to use when installing 11g?  
Should I go with 32 or 64bit? I have a bare VM system I have been given to use 
as a test base and need to pick an OS.

Thanks!
