-5v Voltage Regulator Answered

I want to make a -5v Voltage Regulator...

Does anyone know if I replace the 7805 regulator with a 7905 would that be enough, or would the capacitors have to be different values?

At the risk of stating the obvious - don't forget that it is only -5V with respect to something else e.g., a common ground or common 0V rail. Cheers, Pat. Pending
