Make sure you review the information at
as this resource is dedicated to running Oracle on VMware and have
several good docs on best practices and performance numbers.

We have been running production Oracle(9i, 10g, R11, R12) inside
VMs(RHEL3, OEL4 Win2K3) on ESX since release 2.5 for over 3 years now
without a hitch.

Let me know if you are looking for specifics but for the most part we
treat VMs like regular hardware as far as it concerns Oracle setups,
monitoring and maintenance.
