Look in the output of dmesg, you will find information about the cards I guess. The driver of the card which was succesfully loaded first will be the first eth adapter, eth0.

Run "lsmod" as root in konsole. If wireless module is loded you should see "ipw2100" in the list ( Intel's Open Source driver for the first Centrino generation)

Unless you installed the drivers for the wireless it will be the wired network. There are a couple of different Wireless cards used in the Thinkpads I am pretty sure none of them have a driver included in the stock kernel yet.

Edit: The easy way to find out by the way is to run iwconfig for a wired connection it will show "no wireless extensions" (duh) and for a wireless interface it will show info like ESSID, Mode, Channel, etc...
