Provided the wire is short, you don't need a pukka cable. I once built
an AUI cable from two DB15 connectors and about eight inches of random
15-pin ribbon cable I had lying around. (I first tried it with some
six or eight feet of the same ribbon cable, but the error rate was
insane. But six to eight inches is short enough that at 10Mb speeds
the impedance bump becomes invisible.)
