I've got a notebook with a 10/100Mbps LAN card and I need to connect to the hub that's around 50 feet from where I will work (Its a 10Mbps hub). What kind of cabling will I need?
Can cat-5 cable be used for both 10 and 100Mbps network?

cat-5 can be used on both 10 and 100 MBps networks, but you need the proper nic card and other hardware to use it to its full potential.

I didn't get you. What do you mean by a "proper" NIC card and
what are the other hardware I'll need.

cat-5 cable will work fine for you.  What I was referring to was that in order to have a 100 Mbps you need a 100 mbps nic card and a 100 Mbps hub and have the distance between them be under 100 meters.
