System Hook question

Last Modified: 2013-11-20
I'm using VC++ 6.0 and my application uses MFC. It is supposed to log all keyboard activities outside my application like hotkeys or etc...
How do I create a system hook? The MSDN library tells us to write it as a seperate library file or something, but I need more explanation on the actual process...

An example would really help a lot.
