Actually it is not a graphics driver.  It is a network or dialup driver.  See here:

Wakeup hit that one.  It is definitely network or dial-up.  Do I get brownie points for agreeing?

vnetbios.vxd is one of the Network virtual device drivers for windows.
It is normally installed whenever networking or dial-up services are installed on the computer.

It is common for this file to create an error in windows 98/95 on startup when a network driver installation was not completed properly, or the windows CD wasn't available. It may also happen when a computer is upgraded from DOS/Win3.1 to Windows 9x, as the old network drivers don't get automatically removed by the windows install.

If you are getting an error try removing all network related functions from the network icon in Control Panel, and then reboot the computer. On restart the network card should be re-detected and the network files will be re-installed.
