Lightbulb old phone lines

Hello all;
got an old house with old phone wiring. The phone wiring from the wall has 8 wires;
blue with white stripe
white with blue
green with white
white with green
brown with white
white with brown
orange with white
and white with orange.
I have a modern phone jack with the four color posts: red, green, yellow and black.
Does anyone know how these map out properly, or where I can search for this info?
Hey, and let's be careful out there this week-end.
