You said that before :)

You didn't answer the question of "what kind of PCI card is this?"

Who is telling you you "have to"?

Then use it as a block device.  Note, you need a special type of PCI
card to be able to do this, as well as a special kernel driver for that
PCI card to make it work properly.

But without any knowledge of what type of PCI card you have, it's a bit
hard to give you anymore help, sorry.
