10BT cables and lightning

I would like to setup my home-net using 10bt cables between my linux and
windoze boxen, but the only way I have to run the cables is to run it out
a window, under the house, and back in a window. Is there any method of
protecting the cables & cards from lightning damage? Several pc's and a 16
port concentrator died recently due to a very close lightning strike.

Would running the cable thru some metal conduit protect me? Are there
devices similar to surge suppresors for ethernet cables?
