I can install but can't run Windows 1.01 on VMware. It just throws some beeps and starts with green screen. Is this some incompatibility with VMware or DOS 6.22?

its not compatible to DOS 6.22, also in vmware/vpc the bootscreen is weird, better use bochs with dos 5 or older ;)

The bootable floppy is based on an older dos and doesnt show the bootscreen, so you havent got that problem ;)
