If running SQL Server 2008 Standard edition on a VMWare host, am I limited to 4 virtual CPUs?

when you say "CPU's, are you referring to virtual CPU's? i believe Standard 2008 is 4 sockets, but the Virtual CPU's could be, say 16 on a four socket motherboard with four-core processors per physical CPU?

or am i reading it wrong?
