Ok, quick question...I use __djgpp_nearpt_enable() so i  can write directly
to video memory (it is so much faster than using memput or the poke
functions). Anyway, i was wondering, what exactly this function does. Does
it disable protected mode completely. If so, can i then write a keyboard
handler in the same way i did in real mode? I am unsure as to what exactly
this does. Could someone please tell me.
