IIRC, you need to buy a "Select" developer membership from Apple for
$500 a year. This will provide you with seeding software, including OS
X. More infos on Apple developer programs can be found at

As a side note, Steve Jobs has announced at the Seybold that a public
beta version of OS X will be available on September 13. So, you should
be able to download it or probably get it on a CD for a nominal fee.
