Your PC should be able to actually install using a Boot-132 method, it allows you to update OS X through the Apple Software Update, but it may be a bit hard to install if you don't follow a guide correctly. You also would need a CD and a dual layer DVD or a retail OS X Leopard disc.

You can still install OS X using that DVD image you have downloaded by burning it to a DVD at 2x speed (to make sure there are no burning errors) and then reboot your computer and then go into the Disk Utility once the DVD boots up and format a disk as HFS+ Journaled then install OS X. If you want to keep Windows XP, you will need to get another hard drive to install OS X on, it is MUCH easier.
