Basically install your modem with the "ethernet" line on a normal hub;
plug your Linux into that hub.  Under /etc/resolv.conf tell the Linux
box that your DNS is the Comcast Cable box -- probably or
something like that.  Just keep pointing to their name servers:


Then, you set your /etc/hosts lines like this       localhost.localdomain   localhost     inside.private   inside

Make sure your network is plumbed so that you are on the Private NAT
side of the cable modem; but make the default route "the cable modem."

That should do it.
