Default windows 98 won't boot

I accidentally deleted vmm32.vxd (I hope it is in the recycle bin) and of course now widnows 98 will not boot, I get the error vmm32.vxd is required to run windows if this file is no in your path you may need to reinstall windows.

Any suggestions for a fix rather than a reinstall? Can I restore the file from the recycle bin by getting to safe mode, How do I get to safe mode?

To get into safe mode:

And yes, IF you have not emptied your recycle bin, go and restore it from there, NOW. To do that open it up, right click on the file and it will give you the option to restore it back like it was. Liz
