For more links use google and search for "windows 98 vmm32.vxd" !

haha, it has been long since I last heard about this problem.
VMM32.vxd is created during the Win9x installation, and can't be fixed without reinstallin windows.
The link someone gave above was something slightly different from what I think you might have been going through.
The situation taken into consideration by that link to the MSDN code base, was that you couldn't boot your computer because you didn't have the VMM32.vxd file, so a message like this appears: "Windows could not boot because file "VMM32.vxd" is missing or corrupt. Please reinstall a copy of "VMM32.vxd" to C:\Windows\System.

And you could boot your windows right? you didn't have trouble to boot right?
If that's so, the thing that's going on is that Windows can't load the file properly. You need to set the path in MS-DOS to C:\Windows\System

This old driver needs to be in this folder: C:\Windows\System\vmm32.vxd , so just do this in DOS : path=c:\windows\system, so the path will be set to the SYSTEM

I love formating my comp. It makes it feel as if i have a new comp. Don't know why. Might have something to do with nothing being on it, so having to reinstall all the new drivers and d/l firefox and stuff like that!!
