i've done it several times, but i'm currently in the process of Doing It
Right(tm). i got a patch panel (about $200 for a 24 port patch panel).
i have a linksys 5 port hub (£99) and am planning on getting a 16 port
switch for about £199 sterling). i've had ports installed in almost
every room (£50 a pop).
the expensive part will be the t1/ei line, but i still haven't gotten that
call from gay byrne...
