This instructable is going to show you how you can make your own "ServDuino" web server, and get it on the web without some of the roadblocks that I, and many others have faced.
Some of this instructable is a work in progress - specifically the code on the programming step. Not all of the code was released as of the publishing of this instructable because I am always improving or writing new code for my projects. I am also seeking help from the instructables community in writing code, not because I am lazy, but because I know that I don't have the most efficient code, as I have been programming in c for only a few years, most of which is spent in the world of Arduino.

I entered this into the Microcontroller contest, so if you think its awesome, or it helps you off the ground with the ethernet shield, vote for it! :)
Step 1: What You Will Need
The Required Parts are:
An Arduino Ethernet Shield - Note: If you have an older shield, you will not be able to use an SD card with it. If you don't have a shield, get the newest version!!!
A box to put it in - Recommended
An LCD Screen
An SD Card
Even More Optional Parts - These are for external controls and/or sensors:
A Second Arduino
Whatever sonsers and controllers you want
Either a Long Cable or a wireless Transciever (like an Xbee)
