How to setup vmware server 4 in Blade center S chassis?

This is a new purchase with the items as follows:

            1 blade center S chassis (88861TA)
            3 HS 22 blade center, each with 2x146g HDD, 24G Ram (7870B3A)
            2 storage modules, each with full 6 HDDs  (43W3581)
            2 Nortel Network Layer 2/3 GbE modules (32R1860)
            2 RAID Controller modules  (43W3584)
            3 SAS Connectivity CiOv cards for each blade (43W4068)
            1 Tape Drive TS2340 (3580S4E)

I want to setup vmware server 4 on each blade, how to do it? for chassis and all the componenst setup, I understand that I have to setup through AMM, SCM... How about the nortel network module? tape drive (suppose I want to assign to 1 server)? Do you have a step-by-step guidance? How about firmware updates? matrix?

Hi Balack...

Sorry... I'm just curious about the tape drive TS2340? Does it work in your new virtualized setup?
I have a TS2340 (3580S4X) tape drive that doesn't work in my VMWare. I think it's a compatibility issue with VMWare. I have been searching for a solution for this problem, but I haven't find it so far.

Any ideas? Thanks..
