Vmware Machines in a DMZ

I would like to know if I need to put some VM machines in a DMZ (between 2 physical firewall appliances), then do I need to put a physical ESX server in the DMZ , or there is another way  to do that ?

Thank you

Just run the Cat5/6 cable to the switch in DMZ on one end and the Nic of ESX server on the other end ?

Correct, make sure it's a different vSwitch with different Virtual Machine Portgroup and label DMZ

If My ESX host has 2 or more physical Nics, can I plug one of them to the switch in DMZ and leave others plugged to the switch inside the Network ?
