Not to argue (actually, I love to argue)... but I think "modem" is the
right term. I think cable modems modulate/demodulate between digital and
RF (TV/F?). The (downstream) signal is carried on a 6MHz cable channel,
upstream is smaller, I think.

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, but isn't a "cable modem" (funny name since
doesn't modulate or demodulate--all digital) a standalone device that
connects to your computer via ethernet cable and a nic in your PC. The
"cable modem" negotiates the connection with the cable-company. So to use
cable-modem with Linux, you simply have to have IP networking enabled, and
have the appropriate network numbers, dns, default gw, etc.
