Issue with XP Network drivers for Dell GX270

I reinstalled XP on a Dell Optiplex GX270.
The audio and video drivers self-installed but I am having trouble with the network drivers.
I tried the drivers I had on disk (R132254.exe) and they did not install – there was still a yellow question mark on the Ethernet Controller on Device Manager.
I tried the latest from dell.com (R87461).  The self-extraction created the folder in \Dell\Drivers\R87461, and the InstallShield Wizard runs, but after running setup.exe it still did not seem to install properly.  I still have the yellow question mark.

The readme directions refer to a \drvinst folder, but from the command line I only see the \R87461.exe, not a folder.  

Thanks for your help!
