To answer Peter's question (above), I googled for 

    "Optiplex GX270" linux ethernet

...and found http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/?pagename=details&hid=5543 , 
which includes:

   Component: Network Interface
   Status: Compatible
   Comments: On-board Intel Corp. 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller 
        (rev 02)

Googling for

   82540EM linux

...one finds, as expected, that the correct driver is e1000.
