Hello we are building our first set of virtual servers and we have chosen to run microsoft hyper v that is included with windows 2008 server entrprise edition.

I have the following questions all related to the installation
Obviously I load window 2008 enterprise as the host operating system however I am confused by what I load when I install the 4 virtual machines.   Do I load them all with enterprise versions as well?   Historically there are more features in the enterprise editions  
When I purchase my CAL's do I purchase them for each virutal machine seperately?  Or does an enterpise CAL cover all the virtual machines?

Thanks in advance
