    Link indicates how do do the install but is in breach of the licence agreement so has been removed.

      Note the first paragraph:
      How to install Snow Leopard in VMWARE 7 and Windows host ? Virtualization of Snow Leopard (Client) is not officially supported/allowed by any virtualization solution. However a few modifications to the .vmx file and use a modified install disk as this will save a lot of trouble. Let me clear Apple licensing does not allow for the virtualization of OSX Client on any hardware and only allows for the virtualization OSX server on Apple hardware. Anything else is in violation of the license agreement. This article is for informational purposes only, you can never achieve full utilization of Mac OS X on VMWARE. So if you like the Mac then go ahead and buy a Mac.

        Now that you have Workstation 7 installed, you need a pre-configured VMware virtual machine file to install Snow Leopard on top of.

          What you are trying to do is breaching your license agreement.

            Admittedly i have done this before. But i wouldnt waste time on it. It runs like a dog. You can try emulating it with PearPC but this also takes alot of system resources. As already said though your in breach of the EULA.
