System INI.- vnetsetup.vxd - vredr.vxd - dfs.vxd - nidswan.vxd - and msnp32.dll
It was running ok last week connected to my XP system with a KVM switch. Then this afternoon I installed a second hard drive which I saved from an earlier crash on XP. This drive was in a bit of a mess, I had tried to reinstall XP and got so far, then I formatted it, or thought I did but it still had part of XP on it. I thought I would format it in 98SE and use it for backup in the second system. I had 2 hard drives in 98 for 3 years or so until I built the second system.
The other funny thing is when I booted to 98 the first time and went straight through the missing files messages, which booted to the desktop, I switched to the XP system to post on here and the electricity blinked on and off rapidly then stayed off, I have an UPS so was able to switch both systems off. I then tried again, got the same messages and the same effect on the power, no fuses are blown and no trip switch activated. I am now only using the XP system and it's ok. This must be coincidence, yes?
The .vxd files are usually stacked in a single vmm32.vxd file in Win9x and can be a pain to repair, it usually falls over if it discovers missing files so you're lucky it's still booting properly - can you see the other drive if you boot in Safe Mode?
It's an old problem with Win 98, Sapins. My memory of Win 98 is hazy now, but what you have to do to fix the problem, is uninstall the "Client for Microsoft Networks" from Control Panel > Network (I think) then reinstall it again, you'll need the Win 98 CD if I remember correctly.
The missing drive - did you reformat using W98 or just install as slave to W 98 C: drive? If still on NTFS file system not sure if W98 will pick it up (FAT 32). You could try running fdisk from c:\ prompt to check if drive is visible and what file system is in use.
