The CS and IP parameters access the return address stored on the stack. 
(so after the iretd it will continue executing from there) In 16-bit DOS 
you can even simulate multithreading using this. Just hook int8 and 
store the CS/IP and all the other registers for the current thread and 
load CS/IP/registers of the next thread to be executed. Alas I didn't 
find a way to do that in 32-bit DPMI. :)
