Unfortunately you can't write files system drivers in Delphi. You need C++ and Microsoft's DDK. If you want to have it a bit easier, you can think about buying VToolsD ( www.numega.com ). This package hides some nasty vxd stuff from you.
A full file system hook driver including sources (needs VToolsD) is available at www.sysinternals.com in the file monitor.
Loading/calling a vxd in Delphi is no problem (CreateFile and DeviceIoControl).

Regards, Madshi.
