This behavior can occur if you run Windows 98 Setup from MS-DOS. The Vmlid.nlm and Odiload.vxd files are not updated if Windows 98 Setup is run from MS-DOS.
To resolve this behavior, extract the updated versions of the Vmlid.nlm and Odiload.vxd files from the Base5.cab cabinet file on your original Windows 98 CD-ROM or disks. Extract the Vmlid.nlm file to the Novell\Client32 folder, and extract the Odiload.vxd file to the Windows\System folder.
For information about using the Extract tool, type "extract" (without quotation marks) at a command prompt, or see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
TITLE : How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files
If you are using Novell Client32 version 2.2.0 or earlier, Windows 98 Setup automatically updates the Vmlid.nlm and Odiload.vxd files if Setup is run from within Windows 95.
If Novell Client32 is installed or reinstalled after Windows 98 is installed, you need to manually extract Vmlid.nlm and Odiload.vxd files.
