I am currently new to ESX server, trying to accomplish the following:

Host 3 separate virtual networks on one ESX server.  Each network will consist of one Windows 2003 SBS, and one Windows XP machine.

In total, we want to have each network have one SBS and one XP machine, joined to the domain.

What is the recommended setup for this?  I believe I need a vSwitch and then a vRouter for each domain?  Thanks for any guidance you can provide, and any links are appreciated.

Currently I have the ESX server software installed, and all machines are running on the ESX server itself.  I have not really made any ESX server related configuration changes, beyond installing and moving the machines over to it.

You are correct, very simple setup, just create 3 vSwitches and either 3 or 1 vRouter (depending on config) and move the machines to the appropriate places
