I too had run m0n0 on VMware at one time and used the .iso in lieu of the
hard disk.  Too lazy to set up BSD on VMware just to format the floppy
image, I Googled around for a while and found the .flp floppy boot image for
the Plan9 OS.  This worked fine, and I believe there was about 1MB of free
space on the image.

couple of things, you don't need the Hard disk.
Set it up (in the VM machine bios) to boot from CD (use the ISO image)
I also set the floppy to be an image rather than real hardware. You will
need to connect this image to some other VM machine to format it BEFORE
using it with the m0n0 image. From the error message this might be the
problem you are experienceing

I had it set up with 5 nics (i recently need to re-build the W2K host OS and
have not got round to re-installing VMWare yet).

Worked REALLY well
