Thanks for the quick response.

Ok i understand what you are saying, but how does the pci bus driver know that 
the card has these functions, does it somehow ask the card what functions it 

I'm sorry these questions are elementary, the document by Jochen Kunz "Writing 
drivers for NetBSD" does not cover devices with multiple functions. I shall 
go through it again with a fine tooth comb later and see if i cant get my 
head around things.

Thanks again for the help.
