Unhappy Comcast cable modem problems

Has anyone else had problems running comcast @home on their linux machine. I have RH 7.0 and everything works( even the Nvidia card), except the cable modem.
I have a Realtek 8029(yuk!!) and the modem is connected via CAT 5 and not a USB.
I think the modem works as it has the correct driver and it all seems fine. However on boot up the Computer can not determine an IP address. I have it configured for DHCP- i am struggling to find a place where i can put my Client contact number which @home assigns you( this is needed for the service to recognise me!!). Does anyone have any ideas.
Any help much appreciated

check out :

this explains how the DNS name is employed in configuring for DHCP. I was able to connect to @Home w/ a RCA DOCSIS modem using the configuration he'd layed out.

good luck
