Generally speaking you need a kernel-mode device driver to do this.
There is a freely available example of such driver for Windows NT,
called directnt (ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/ctsi/directnt.zip).

I guess under Win9x it also can be done from a DOS VM running in
protected mode (via DPMI calls), not sure if it will work on WinNT
