DLL Loading Issue

Hi,
Is there any way to (forcibly) load DLL at the memory location specified by us?

Can any one explain the meaning and difference between "Little Endian" and "Big Endian"?

    It is not possible to load a DLL at a specific address, because Dynamic Link Libraries are dynamically loaded into the process memory space. Since you never know if a certain address already contains a DLL, you might override vital code for the application to run, thus causing any number of problems.
    It is possible for the DLL to set a preferred address, but if another DLL already occupies that address, it will be loaded to another.
