Just made a nice clean install of Win 98 and all went well but on booting up get message (which slows down booting for long time) that I'm missing four files:
vnetsup.vxd
vredir.vxd
dfs.vxd
msnp.dll

I assume they relate to "network" files (?) But I connect ok now with my NIC card (cable modem) ; I could not find reference to these files in system.ini. Don't know if to find them on my Win 98 CD disc where I would put them if I did or what program needs them so's I can shut off these dragged out messages from on high.
thx
Howard
