Questions re ASMLib on Linux

Greetings,

I am working with Oracle 10gR2 (10.2.0.3.0) on a two node RAC cluster
running on Linux RHEL3. My questions...

1)Is ASMLib required?
2)If so must one configure the disks prior to creating the ASM instance
or will the DBCA take care of that?

If it is not required what are the advantages of using it?

Thanks.
