Well, first off there are lots of OSX ISOs out there. (I assume that you do not legitimately own OSX, or the DMG format would be no prob.
Secondly, VMWare will not run OSX.
Neither will VirtualBox. OSX is intentionally designed to resist virtualization.
The only ways (that I know of) to run OSX is to install it natively (I have no idea how to accomplish this, but I've heard that it can be done with trickery.) or to use a PowerPC emulator like PearPC. (http://pearpc.sourceforge.net
I'll tell you what, though, PearPC runs really, really SLOW
. . . I know this from first hand experience.
Third, I don't know how your VMWare install is so hosed, but it appears that it is. I would uninstall the RPM if I were you and try installing the generic Linux installer. That version always worked for me.
