my understanding is that the two signal pairs need to reverse, so they match
up with the right pins on the other side. This is called a crossover cable.

Most patch cables, as labeled by fry's/etc, are straight through connections.

My advice would be to buy a cheap hub and make your life easier, since the hub
will take regular cabling, and give you lots of blinking leds to tell you
what's going on :)
