Re: new home wiring questions

some great advice guys.  I have been convinced of the error of my ways
with regard to coax.  I also now plan on running cat5e to the various
volume control boxes (not that I am going to initially do anything with
them).  Seems prudent for the future.

I am a little worried after looking at my electrician's run of power.
I see lots of places near receptactles where I was hoping to have a
cat6 jack.  I don't see any easy way to stay far away from the power
lines -- I will try my best.  Would using pieces of metal conduit to
hold segments of a cat6 run help if I  need to run near power (as in,
will this protect against interference)?

What do I need to worry about as far as separation from other cables
with my 14/2 or 14/4 speaker wire.  What distance separation should the
speaker wire have with both the cat6 and power?

I really appreciate all the suggestions!
