Disc Brake bolts?

Hi

I need a set of bolts for a standard 6-bolt deore disc hub. I know I can get a set
from an LBS but the nearest is little further than I want to go tomorrow.
I can get to a bolt supply place though, can anyone tell me the specs of a suitable
bolt?

They are m5 bolts that have torx heads on them. Torx heads aren't really necessary but it will help prevent you from rounding out the head and getting a stuck bolt you have to cut out.
