Altiris PXE and Virtualization

We will be virtualizing our Altiris server which we currently use to image workstations via a PXE boot. Does anyone know of any gotchas of putting the server in a VMWARE virtual environment?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have virtualized the Deployment server, but kept the database and Notification server on a physical server. I've run it on esx 3.5 and now on vsphere 4 without any complications. Good luck :-)
