cable internet setup

i am geting comcast cable and i was told that i would have to set it up in windows with the install cd so it can bind the mac address and then after the modem is activated i can plug it into my linux pc

is there a way to set it up without the windows pc

i have never had cable so what are the steps i have to take upon activation to setup my linux box to be able to access the internet through my cable modem

also do i need to setup dhcp ?

its comcast cable and i have a motarola surboard sb5100 if that matters
