Default Ethernet driver help for Dell Dimension 5150

I have been cleaning up sister-in-law's computer which crashed. The guys have helped me a great deal in this thread: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=118176. And I really appreciate them. Now I have a new question regarding drivers so I thought I would have to post it here.

Short story is we had to reinstall Windows XP home edition (she use to have Windows XP media center 2006). A relative told me that I needed to go out to the dell website and download a driver to get her ethernet connection up and running (she runs DSL to get online). I did that with her service tag and came up with this website: http://support.dell.com/support/down...&os=WW1&osl=EN.

Does anyone know which driver I need?
