CodeGuru has been updated with a new article entitled "API Hooking Revealed", which takes a look at what's required to implement a simple win32 hooking system. Here's a snippet from the introduction:

"Intercepting Win32 API calls has always been a challenging subject among most of the Windows developers and I have to admit, it's been one of my favorite topics. The term Hooking represents a fundamental technique of getting control over a particular piece of code execution. It provides an straightforward mechanism that can easily alter the operating system's behavior as well as 3rd party products, without having their source code available."
