It depends if you are going to use the cable as a cross-over, or a patch cable.

There are 2 downloads from Tech Republic that should give you all you need to know.
cat 5 patch cable guide
rj45 installation guide

Just go to the download section and search for them. Use all lower case letters in the search box.

Here is the wiring order for a straight through cable...
white/orange
orange
white/green
blue
white/blue
green
white/brown
brown
you would fit the other end the same. If doing a crossover cable, one rj-45 jack would have the above wiring order, the other will have
white/green
green
white/orange
blue
white/blue
orange
white/brown
brown
you will need a set of crimpers which you can purcahse at most computer shops for about $20
Good luck!
