Sun cluster 4.0 - zone cluster failover doubt

Hello experts -

I am planning to install a Sun cluster 4.0 zone cluster fail-over. few basic doubts.

(1) Where should i install the cluster s/w binaries ?. ( global zone or the container zone where i am planning to install the zone fail-over)

(2) Or should i perform the installation on both. (Global zone and container zone).

(3) Can i have the cluster installed only in the zone and not the Global zone.

Kindly clarify the basics for me.
Thank you...

Thx,
NVA

NAME
scha_cluster_getzone - zone name access function SYNOPSIS
cc [flags...] -I /usr/cluster/include file -L /usr/cluster/lib -l scha #include <scha.h> scha_err_t scha_cluster_getzone(char **zonename); DESCRIPTION
The scha_cluster_getzone() function returns a string that identifies the zone from which the function is called. If you call this function in a non-global zone, the zone name and the node name are returned, in the format nodename:zonename. If you call this function in the global zone, only the node name is returned. The node name is not necessarily the same as the Solaris system name. The function returns an error status. If successful, the function also returns a string that contains the node name and the zone name in the location that is pointed to by the zonename argument. If the call fails, the zonename argument is set to NULL. The caller of scha_cluster_getzone() is responsible for freeing the memory that is allocated for the returned string by using the standard C library function free(3C). Freeing the memory is required only if the function succeeds. RETURN VALUES
The scha_cluster_getzone() function returns the following values: 0 The function succeeded. nonzero The function failed. ERRORS
SCHA_ERR_NOERR The function succeeded. See scha_calls(3HA) for a description of other error codes. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Using the scha_cluster_getzone() Function scha_err_t err_code; char *zonename; err_code = scha_cluster_getzone(&zonename); ... if (zonename != NULL) free(zonename); FILES
