Connecting ESX Host to SAN switches.

I would like to know how you set up SAN Switch for ESX Hosts. I believe the VLAN where the ESX hosts are on, for instance VLAN 10, should also exist on SAN switch.
How do you configure SAN switch (Cisco) for each VLAN matching the VLANs on ESX Hosts. I have heard about Zoning, then heard about the recommendation  to have ESX Hosts in each VLAN map to the same VLAN on SAN switch. Now it  is like I am confused which one should be done? Zoning or VLAN to VLAN mapping, or they are 2 different tasks?

Thank you
