I've got some old PCs and some old network cards (read: 100MBs) that I'm not completely certain support IPv6, but I understand they've been implementing it in network cards since sometime in the earily 90s and the card are assured to be older than that.

So I guess my overall question is, how do I find out if an old NIC works with IPv6?

I've got a LinkSys LNE 100TX, and a NetGear FA311 Rev-D2

Hi
Install those network cards onto a PC that has WinXP or even Windows 7. Open command prompt and type

ping ::1

If you get a response then your cards support IPv6

I have added what you should get as a response down below
