Here you can download the original PCMIDI utilities and manual as well as the newer version quick setup guide.

Keep in mind no drivers are needed for DOS.
Windows 3.x , 9x and ME include the "Roland MPU-401" driver which works perfectly with PCMIDI and it's recommended to use it.

There are alternative drivers listed below that offer more features but they are aimed for serious usage under windows environment, there is no guarantee they will behave well in other situations.
