Cheap, sure... but its so hard!  Assuming I've done my homework and I 
know the pinouts on both sides, how do I map the cable colors to pin 
locations?  I certainly can't see inside that little hood that encloses 
the rj-45 adapter.  :-/

Any way I might be able to build a cable tester for this sort of thing? 
  If the tester was $200, I'd still think it a bargain in the long run.

Thanks for the resources so far!
