not sure if there are specific drivers for your modem, definitely prompt you to read up on usb support in linux, try www.linuxdoc.org for some howto's...
also another good resource is at www.linux-usb.org

found this link claiming support for the cable modem is in kernel 2.4.6 and later.. http://www.computing.net/linux/wwwboard/forum/7161.html

might be able to update your kernel if your using a older version and have support built in.
