Dennis,
I tried it too with same os and version.  Works great!  I was told by OWS
that the catalog is going away in the near future.

  I can't speak to 8i, but I've heard from other 8i DBA's that's the primary
  reason they use the recovery catalog -- it's much easier to do a complete
  recovery.  With 9i, I didn't see the point of setting up yet
  another database
  to manage.  With controlfile autobackup enabled, you can just follow the
  detailed instructions in Metalink Note 174623.1 for the recovery.

  I've done it (9.2.0.4 / AIX5L) and it works great!
