    ok hopefully someone can help me out here...i have a slight idea of what is wrong just from what i've read but i'm not for sure. when i turn my pc on it doesn't finish exiting dos and comes up with the following:

    Cannot find a device file needed to run Windows or a Windows application. The Windows registry or SYSTEM>INI file refers to this device file, but this device file no longer exists. If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program. If you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file.

    it then shows this - vnetsetup.vxd (and tells me to hit any key)
    then shows - vredir.vxd (and tells me to hit a key)
    then shows - dfs.vxd (and tells me to hit any key)

    it finally exits dos and then shows the following right before my background comes up:

    Unable to load dynamic link library mnsp32.dll. The system cannot find the file specified. Some or all of the feature is not available. Microsoft Networking.

    i'm not sure if these are separate problems or related. any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated.
