It is pretty easy, just set it up as you normally would setup a NIC card. If
it uses DHCP to assign IP addresses then simply setup a DHCP client on the
linux box.See ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/mini there is a
Mini-HOWTO on Cable Modems running under Linux (They have vendor specific info
there).

It is not the easiest thing to do, but very possible.  I found these
sites to be great places to start:

http://www.linux-howto.com/LDP/HOWTO/
http://freeland.ml.org/cablemodem.html
http://www.kernel-panic.com/user_files/cable-linux.html
