Um, just to be clear ... you talked about using a crimping tool. Are
you planning to make long patch cables - with male RJ45s at each end -
or mount wall plates? I'd really recommend wall plates if you can manage it;
you can buy plates with 2 or 4 or 6 modular holes that can be filled
with RJ45s or F connectors or what have you. The cheap punch-down tool
that comes with the RJ45 plug in is good enough for one use, if not more.

Pull at least two runs of CAT 5 if you're bothering to do it; you can
use one for a phone line.

Or ... just go wireless. 802.11g is pretty good if range isn't a problem.
