I hate to ruin your fun, but my old high school already has a web page via
Linux (the computer club or something) through wednet.
You should watch during the boot process and see what happens when
networking is initialized (maybe you get an error about not finding the
card at a given address or something).
If the card is detected and configured at boot, you should be able to do
'ifconfig eth0' and see the current setup for your Ethernet adapter.
