Can some knowledgeable person direct to a document that talks about LAN
cabling for a 10Mb/s ethernet LAN.

My daughter's primary school has a computer lab (currently not LAN'd)
that they wish to connect the Internet.

I need to do a big run from one building to another (Computer Lab to
Library) which is 100m+ and several multi-metre runs within the library.
I envisage running coax between building and cat5 within. I need to know
critical lengths of cable. Max bus length etc.

Can anyone help?
