Indeed, the PE1650 has an embedded Intel Pro/1000 gigabit NIC, the e1000
driver is appropriate for it.

Dell hasn't tested a 2.2.x series kernel on the PE1650, so we don't have a
comment on the proper driver for it either.  Red Hat Linux 7.1 was the first
release supported on that platform, which had a 2.4.x kernel; prior kernels
and releases are officially unsupported, though you may be able to make it
work, and this list is appropriate for such informal questions/answers.
