How do i set up ESXi 4.1 right for dmz and lan?

Hi Professionals,

i am new in the product of ESXI4.1. So i am right now testing on a playesxserver.
I implemented a ESXI4.1 Machine with two physical nics. We have two physical switches, one for dmz (controlled by asa) one for the lan (controlled by asa).
I pluged in one nic in the lan and one in the dmz. In the setting of the esx i found only to set up one nic. This is working and i have access by VCenter and the hosted lan machines are accessible like they should. now i want to virtualize a machine from dmz. Do i have to configure vlan or how can i manage not to mix up? And if VLan can someone point me in the right direction how to solve this?

You might want to check if your other NIC is on VMware's HCL.

With two physical NICs (pNICs) going to physical switches on separate networks, you'll need to configure a vSwitch for each network and configure it to use the appropriate uplink (pNIC).  If you do not see both of your NICs listed from the vCenter client, check to make sure it's on the VMware HCL like michelkeus mentioned.
