This happen because you dont have GRUB installed. You can download 'grub-disk' package using aptitude to get the floppy images and then boot your Debian GNU/Hurd on VMWare.

Is that supposed to be before or after I get GNU/Hurd booted. I couldn't find aptitude or apt-get on the installation CD. I was able to find a floppy image of some kind online, but I haven't been successful in installing it to hard drive using the floppy image. Maybe once I get the network figured out I might be able to use apt-get to grab grub-disk.

I'd have to say that Hurd really needs to be easier to install if it is going to gain traction against Linux.
