I'm seeing all of these job postings for VB.Net. Can someone explain to me what the difference is between VB and VB.net?

VB.net is the latest microsoft iteration of Visual Basic.
The differences between VB 6 and VB.net in some cases are subtle and can trip up a seasoned VB programmer. Particularly overloading, true object inheritence, strict type checking, etc. It uses what is called the Dot Net framework which is a common libary that can be interchanged with VB, VC, etc.

VB.net is not backwards compatible with VB6 unless it is a relatively simple code. MS does provide a migration tool, but as Im sure others will attest, its basically useless. It generates a to-do list that is so long, you might as wel re-code the application.
