Venting a toilet

I'm in the process of finishing my basement, and when the house was built about 10 years ago, the basement was roughed in for a bathroom.
The question I have is I got a lot of pipes sticking up from the floor and I want to make sure that the pipes I want to use for the bathroom sink and toilet are correct and that they can be vented properly.
If you look at the pictures http://picasaweb.google.com/rfox264/...eat=directlink I have two pipes coming up through the floor, one for the toilet, and one for a shower...I believe. I would like to use the one for a toilet and cutoff the one marked for a shower. The one pipe that the toilet feeds into goes to the wall and is stubbed up about a foot. I would like to install a T and use this pipe for a sink drain, and extend it up and out for the toilet vent...if that's possible??
Any thoughts?

Venting a toilet

Yes, it looks possible to use a sanitary tee and tie a vanity into the vent for the toilet. This vent would continue up and be a wet vent for the lav and the toilet.

You are going to abandon the shower?

Venting a toilet

Thanks Anti-wingnut!
No, I'm not going to put the shower in because its stubbed up where I'm going to put the bedroom. I'll just cut it off flush to the floor and plug it.
