FYI... just saw this bit of info on an MS team blog:
http://blogs.msdn.com/psssql/archive/2009/05/19/sql-server-support-policy-for-failover-clustering-and-virtualization-gets-an-update.aspx

They now support SQL Clustering on virtual machines - they will support any virtualization vendor who is on the SVVP program (Vmware of course is on SVVP).
