First, I'd try to get the card identification right. What kind of
register are you trying to read? Is that a PCI config register, or
already a memory- or IO-register on the card?

What about lspci? Does it report your board? Does it identify it
correctly? In what machine are you trying this?

Get back with this, and we'll see for the next step ;-)
