    That's a difficult question, because the typical non-driver software
    developer doesn't really need very much information about the PCI bus.

    Can you suggest what KIND of information you would be interested in? There
    are some good web sites that give an overview of the PCI bus.

    U can Download PCI firmware specs , PCI bus architecure and PCI bios
    from pcisig.com
    They are quite useful.
