If you know what you are doing it take take just a few hours.

You can also install RAC with hardly any downtime:

The first time I did it, it took several hours (nearly a day). The main things (for me) were making sure that the kernel parameters were spot on.

The second and subsequent times were much quicker though, as the hardware was the same, I was able to make use of many of the config files I had created for the first RAC.

I always make sure that the cluvfy scripts all complete properly before moving on from each step - it makes it a lot easier in the long run!
