The BIOS and kernel will take care of setting up the PCI registers and reading your unique vendor and device IDs. Your driver only needs to deal with the unique hardware in the chip. These can be mapped into either I/O space or memory space. Read Linux Device Drivers for the whole scoop on device drivers.
