Although this is not reccommended typically people will split out the white/orange and white/green pairs for the 10/100BaseT application leaving the white/blue and white/brown pairs for voice.
The color code for the data remains as per T568A or T568B (your choice) using only the the 2 pairs listed above and voice will require the white/blue pair cut down in it's normal position.
See the "references|pinouts" above for the color codes.
On this site there is also information under the "references|pinouts| on splitting a cat 5e for two data outlets (last item on page)
