[ale] Media cablemodem

Media1 is offering cable modem service in my area.  It sounds
like a very nice deal -- megabit speeds and I can be connected
all the time.  Does anyone have expierence with Media1 and/or
cable modems?

They use DHCP to configure Windows boxes.  I think I could use dhcpd
under Linux and they wouldn't notice the difference.  How mature
is Linux's DHCP?  Is there any reason why Linux's implementation
might not work with Media1?

I contacted Media1 months ago and never heard back from them.
Same story from a coworker of mine.  Initial installation
is fairly pricy and I'm leery of the cable industy's reputation
for customer service to begin with.

Thought I'd see what you guys knw before I take the plunge.
