Install SQL 2005 within a VMware ESX Virtual Machine

Hi, I was wondering if there are some best practices concerning the Install of a SQL 2005 within a VMware ESX Virtual Machine. I am especially looking for configuration considerations concerning:
1. SAN disk layout for the SQL databases (use of iSCSI or Fibre or just a plain vmdk disk) and RAID layout
2. Memory settings
3. CPU settings
4. etc
Thanks

I run a couple sql2005 VM's. They all run on Windows 2003 std so 4GB memory, with two cpu's. I run the drives on vmdk's but they are hosted on Raid5 fibre disk. Had no performance issues
