my cable connection does'nt support unix

If my cable company doesn't support unix is there anything I can do. Are there drivers out there or would I be able to buy a third party modem and does it matter what cable co. I use to which cable modem I can use.
Thank you for all your help.

Even if your cable company doesn't support UNIX, you should still be able to get it working. Just plug your cable modem into your NIC on the UNIX box, and configure it with the right ip address if you have it, or configure a DHCP client on the UNIX box to get an address, and you should be all set.
