You can do that only by writing a VxD.

What do you want to make with this???
I am sure that there is another solution instead of what you want to make.
Do not forget that in user mode you can not make such things.

You can't access physical adresses from Win95 and WinNT-applications directly. It's a task for the OS and it's drivers.
If you are not experienced, don't think of writing a driver.
There is however, some generel drivers available doing this task for you. And some are freware. I don't have the URL's available for the moment, but if you are interested, give a comment here and I will provide more information.
What the OS will have to do, is to map physical memory to the virtual memory-space of your process, and supply you with a pointer to it.

I'm sure (I think you too) that  telexxingou talked about
0xe900:0000 address.

Solutions:

1) Write your own VxD
2) Use a commercial WinRT tool from www.bluewatersystem.com
3) Use shareware TVicHW32 http://www.entechtaiwan.com/tools.htm
