You can either do that 1) using the PCI spec, exposing multiple functions in which case Microsoft's PCI.sys will be the bus driver that exposes multiple device, or 2) do it by exposing a single function to PCI.sys and then supplying your own bus driver which further splits your adapter up into different logical devices. If you choose to use Microsoft's bus driver, then you've got to conform to a) all the picayune details of the PCI and PCI Express specs for multi-function devices and b) all the things implied by those specs within Microsoft's driver model. <<
