If you are interested in the VxD route, here it is:

WinRT is a system that allows you to write/access VxDs from
Delphi.  Go to this site and see if you are interested.
From what I've heard, it is fairly simple to use the system
and would do everything you require.

  Here's the WinRT URL:

   http://www.bluewatersystems.com/page5.html

This is probably as much answer as you'll get based on the
difficulty of the solution.

If you are using WinNT there is a possibility to use file handles and
NT like file access functions. Under 95 API is useless (at least it seems).

Under Win31 I know only one way :

Call Real Mode Interrupt (13h) using DPMI functions (int 31h)

I would like to study more about this anyway ...
