Have your Win98CD loading disk ready, go into System Information, in System Tools, click on the Tools header, choose and run System File Checker, and let it replace any missing or corrupted files from the Win98CD. When it finishes remove the CD from the CDROM drive and restart the machine and see if the error goes away.
thanks guys. I'll try those solutions out later. I actually don't have a modem or a network card on the pc in question (I just built it and am using my old pc for internet purposes for the time being. Must seem weird that I build a computer but I don't know windows crap.) I'll let ya know how it works out for me.

Okay, so I checked all the answers that were given in regards to the vnetbios error on Windows 98 and was not happy. Too much to do, and too much headache for a small brain like me. Instead I took life in my own hands and decided to use the registry editor and delete every instance where there word vnet was used. In my case only three times. Now the computer is running great!!!
So hope it works for the rest of us.
1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type in the word regedit
4. Click on OK
5. Now click on the word Edit at the top of the Registry Box that appears, then click on Find.
6. Type in the word vnet and it will find the first instance where it is. Right click on the file or folder and delete it. Do this until you find all of the instances and you will be good. If you cannot connect to the internet afterwards, simply re-install the modem or ethernet software that came with your puter.
