Post How to get Cable Modem to work in any Linux


Help
I am a newbie (be kind) I am also a Senior Citizen so you will have to explain in detail no geek lingo:
I have downloaded every linux and burnt them to cd & dvd and installed them.
Not one of them lets me surf the net
I have Motorola Surfboard S5100 Cable Modem which runs through my Ethernet card on my laptop
I like some of these linux OS
I am doing this through Billy's xp OS
And looks like am stuck with his OS
Until someone can help
Regards
Geoff
