What's the best way to setup a home network? Why should I care about BGP?

You might be able to spoof your User Agent to pretend you are Internet Explorer (while using FireFox). As far as accessing it fro the outside network, likely not. Theoretically, you could find a vuln. or way around the firewall that guards your network, but that might be more risky than you're willing to try.

It's also possible that your school either:

A) Has proprietary software going on in the background, that only play nice with Microsoft products (like IE).
B) Has IE configured in a certain way.

Basically, if they are only enforcing IE because they already have proxy (or whatever) settings set up and they don't want to have to give out that information to every kid, then that should be pretty easy to get around. If it's the first one, then you're probably SOL.

In what way does the server refuse to be accessed by other browsers? Does it return an error page? Garbled data? Nothing?

You might not even have outside network access at all. Try pinging and tracerting to google to see what happens. Also I suggest trying what fas mentioned, spoof your useragent to match IE. Legit ones can be found here.
