How to photograph Solar Eclipse?

There will be Solar Eclipse visible in California on May 19, 2012.

I have never photographed Solar Eclipse before. I can use some pointers on the lens to use and what kind of filter I would need.
How to meter for the correct exposure?

I have Canon 5D Mark II camera with 100-400mm Canon L zoom lens. My other lenses are 200mm and less in focal lengths.
