Interrupt Handling under Windows 95

How can I implement the interrupt handling under Windows
95 ?(I use the Borland 4.02 or 5.0 )
   In fact, I will use the hardware interrupts which comes from a card attached the PC slot.And I want to write an
ISR under Windows 95.
    Please give me some information about this question.

A 32-bit Win95 application can't install an ISR. You can only do this with a VxD (virtual device driver). A 16-bit application can install a ISR, with the use of DPMI calls for real-mode or protected mode handlers. use DPMI (int 31h) 201h or 205h for this, remember that you must perform selector/segment translation for this. Have a look a Ralf Brown's interrupt list for DPMI details.

Thanks a lot,
Yes,I took an answer to my question but not excellent.
You say "You can not ISR in 32bit windows.You must write a VxD code for making this." But I ask,How?,How can I write Vxd to implement Interrupt handling in win32?
        if You give me some information for this subject ,I will be so glad.(if you give me an example code for this VxD ,it will be so good)

Writing a VxD is only possible if you have the DDK (Device Driver Kit). The only way to get this is trough a MSDN Level 2 (or higher) subscription (look at www.microsoft.com). It comes complete with samples, however be prepared for a steep learning curve. Another way is to use a product like Vireo's device driver kit (www.vireo.com) which should make startup a lot easier. Look for a VxD faq at www.chsw.com.

Thanks a lot for your answering.
But I still have a problem with VxD. I have DDK kit.But in this kit
many low level programs were written in assembly language.It is too hard to deal with them.But I'm using C language in genaral.
        Can you give me a book name about VxD writing (but specially ,in this book there must be "interrupt handling" section)
except the "System Programming for Windows 95" written by Oney ,Microsoft press.
        Again I thank you for your interestings..  (**Yucel**)
