how to expand PCI bus?

As shown as below,
The intention is that Card A is plugged into the PCI slot of PC motherboard;
and, Card B is plugged into the PCI slot of Card A.
Card A is a bridge, also Card B is a bridge.
that is for performing the expansion of PCI bus.

PC-----PCI card(A)-----PCI card(B)


Questions are:
WindowsXP and Linux operating system support them?
Why OS can't recognize the device connected to Card B behind Card A?


Any hints will be appreciated!
