Hy, it''s me again

I''ve given some thougts into this problem again, and I came up with memmory adresses. Well, I managed to controll the keyboard lights with 0040:0017 address... but can''t find the one on the HD.

And, isn''t the speaker connected to the mother board, and you can controll it easily controll it.

I''m not looking for a function like HD_LightOn(). I just want to controll it (with "any" necessary resources).

(I thought I replied to this earlier... must have 500''ed)

Look up "Ralf Brown''s Interrupt List" on google. That sucker has interrupts, ports, and memory addresses for just about everything that I''ve ever wanted.

So that when he hacks into some other guy''s PC and starts reading all his personal info, the other guy doesn''t see the HD flashing and get all pissed...


What other reason can you think of?
