interupt is either 8 or 9 . you need to place your function in memory and
change the address to in the ivt to your fuctions address and then when a
key is pressed check the scancode if it is anything other than the key you
want to monitor call the function stored in the previous ivt space for the
particular interrupt , otherwise perform the function that you wanted your
key to perform....
interrupt and ivt are bios concepts so i think it must work on linux also
but i havent tried it.
similar to a TSR ... check out for, in windows it wont work if u r having an anti-virus installed.
