I am running VMWare Server on a Ubuntu 8.10 server.

I have 2 VM's running - both windows 2003 servers.
The servers have 2 virtual disks each configured as C and D.
I have been setting the virtual disk write cache settings to 'optimize for performance.'

I am now installing SQL 2000 onto one of the VM's
Is it wise I set the disk(s) involved with database and logs to 'Optimize for Safety' rather than 'Optimize for performance' ?

Yes, I suggest you set it to Optimize for Safety since DB requires changed to be written immediately.
