The use of Mac OS X with VMWare 6.5 is not a supported option with the product.

The only legal way to run the Mac OS is to have a genuine Intel mac, running something like VMware Fusion and within a VM you can run OS X server.

Sorry, the Days of MAC emulator for PC's is over, where a Emulator would take Altivec instructions and translate them into x86 and run your OS9.

In order to run properly OS X needs a lot of native hardware resources, and a compatible platform.

OS X is only licensed to run on Apple Computer hardware. Even though VMWare is a Intel Hardware emulator, installing OSx86 if a copyright violation and therefore will not merit a "acceptable" installation.

Apple refused to sell OS X unlike Microsoft sells windows. The items you see for sale as "OS X" are Upgrade Licenses to the existing "Hadrware-Software" License from Apple, not Licenses that you can install on any hardware of your liking according to their EULA.

It is unfortunate that Apple has decided to do this, but this type of install is  something you'll have to figure out on your own.

If DJDecay is correct, any resolution that gives information which infringes Apple copyright should not be published.

Right, installing OS X on anything other than a Mac violates the EULA.

Ever hear of Psystar?  Like suggested before, running MacOS on any hardware is a violation of the EULA for MacOS.  I have a friend at work that had built a frankenMac by mimicking the exact hardware a Mac Mini has under the hood.  He has numerous problems with the stability of the computer, and is not worth the hassle of running as it's trademark stability is gone.

yes, the long time running of this MacOSX in non Mac hardware is not worthed, installing on VMware is good for testing only i guess :-)
