They are just simple calls to INT 21h functions 25h and 35h.

Function  25h  Set Interrupt Vector
entry   AH = 25h, AL = interrupt number to reassign the handler to, DS:DX = address of new interrupt vector

Function  35h  Get Interrupt Vector
entry   AH = 35h, AL = interrupt number (hexadecimal)
return  ES:BX = address of interrupt vector

There is a real problem using interrupt vectors on a Win32 platform.
You can do it under Win95/98 because it runs on top of DOS 7.x but not on NT (there is no DOS underneath).

Why do you need to use interrupt vectors anyway?
