Dale,
 at 30m cat5 in conduit is just fine, fiber is nicer, but overkill. you
might also consider pairs of 801.11a access points running in bridging
mode. most of a stuff is cheap now and if they come from same
manufacturer, they will usually run in full duplex and give you the max
throughput at 54Mbs. julius
