Depends on the version.

ESXI 3.x will run on older 32bit only Intel Processors. I have it
running on an old IBM x445 w/ 8 pre-64bit Xeon processors.

ESXi 4.x does require 64bit processors. I can't speak to whether it
requires Intel's VT/VT-x or not as the ESXi 4 servers we're bringing
in are all vmware certified.
