dont know if this is teh right place to put this but i was hoping someone
could give me hand with the at&t assembler syntax.

ive been writing a function in assembler code for a real mode callback. The
code needs to take the ss:sp, of where the program was when this interupt
function is called, from the register pair ds:si then. It uses this to read
the cs:ip address left on the stack when the interupt was called and then
places it back in a memory address pointed to by the register pair es:di. It
then returns with an IRET. unfortunatley my code doesnt work:-

        movw %ds:(%esi), %ax // gets ss:sp which should point to old IP on
        movw %ax, %es:44(%edi) //mov IP into mem structure 44 b disp from
        movw %ds:2(%esi), %ax // gets CS which is 2 bytes disp from IP on
        movw %ax, %es:46(%edi) // move into mem structure
        movw %ds:2(%esi), %ax

        movw $0x1b0, %dx
        outb %dx

The thing im unsure about is the syntax for addressing memory e.g.
%ds:2(%esi), i thought this would take the selector and offset address in
ds:si and then move on 2bytes and return the value there. Is my
understanding of the displacement, i.e. 2, correct?

any help would be very much appreciated,

Andrrew Fairburn.
