We are renovating a just-bought (old) house, and I'd like to run as many wires through the walls now as I can, so as to not have ugly "rat-nests" later...
The basement is likely to house the "heavy" computer equipment (like storage -- eBay has plenty of slightly used equipment) with those on the living floors having (mostly?) light -- possibly diskless -- desktops.
Assuming I want to do this with fibre (rather than plain old Ethernet), what cables do I want, and what, in general, is there to watch out for?
Will I be able to use this same cable for some other purpose -- like transmitting digital audio to one of the rooms, or propagating Verizon's FiOS, or an (optical) FireWire-link from one of the rooms to the server in the basement -- or are those all completly different and incompatible kinds of "fiber"?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
