I don't remember the name of the adapter, Ysuen, but there is a male coax/femail cat5 adapter that can be used in this situation.

My store runs an old IBM CRT system that required coax, but we recently renovated & ran cat5 througout the building... which is why I came across these.

I'm not in the office today, but will get more info for you tomorrow re: purchasing.

hope this helps!

A basic HUB will be enough for your environment.
As an example, 3Com 10Mb hubs have a coax port with 8-12 UTP ports on it.
