No such thing. VDS functions just are, they don't initialize. Only thing that VDS actively changes is that INT 4Bh is revectored and a bit is set at 40:7bh.

Ha! That's it. Some SCSI BIOS uses INT 4BH. It must be passing the register value that VDS interprets as a VDS function, which means AH = 81h. Hmm, let me look things over to see if there's a way to resolve the conflict by further determining the difference or if it's inherently incompatible.
