The BF-1284 driver (zip file) is available from BAFO support: http://www.bafo.com/menu-support.asp . Scroll down the list to the desired product. The driver is for Win98se and Windows Me. You shouldn't need a separate driver for Win7; the drivers should be in the OS. (See the link on Windows 7 compatibility near the top of the URL given above.) I suspect the driver should also be available in the OS for XP.
If your computer doesn't find the driver automatically, check if the driver is listed in Windows Update as optional updates. (You may have to manually check for updates.)
I am assuming that you are referring to the tower (desktop) as the server while the laptop is the client. While the client can access the server's CD drive, you can not ping the server. A couple of ideas: 1. verify that both server and client belong to the same Workgroup; 2. verify that both server and client have the same Subnet Mask and that their satic IP adds are near each other; 3. Server's firewall settings/configurations does not allow/prevents ping response; and/or 4. the server might be using Zonelab, McAfee Firewall, Microsoft ICF SP2 or some other form of port blocking.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
