Oracle Validated RPM - Which to download?

I'm preparing a couple Linux x86_64 servers for building a RAC cluster and thought I'd give the Oracle Validated RPM a try.
The specifics -
Red Hat Linux RHEL 5.5 (kernel level 2.6.18-194)
Oracle Grid Infrastructure release
Oracle Database release
I am not a member of OLN, I don't use the Oracle Unbreakable Kernel and I don't use Oracle Enterprise Linux. (But worn out reading about all of these topics.)
I go to this download site as directed by MOS Note 437743.1.
where I am presented a list of these rpm files:

Question 1: Do I just grab the newest version of these EL5 based rpms? in this case "oracle-validated-1.1.0-7.el5.x86_64.rpm", or is there some other dependency on kernel level?
Question 2: Does this Validated RPM configure changes necessary for Grid Infrastucture as well as Database?
Question 3: Are prople pretty happy with the job that this RPM does in configuring things properly?
Thanks in advance for your insights.

The replay answer
1.) Yes, only take the newest one.
2.) Yep it should (some expeptions apply)*. Just make sure you configured an automatic update server (yum), that all dependent RPMs can be downloaded as well.
For OEL you could use, but since you don't like OEL I am sure you know where to find a free RHEL one...
3.) Definitely. I never go without it.
* E.g. it does not configure/change NTP configuration, as it is a requirement for the 11gR2 GI install.
