I just plugged in my laptop, started network services and I was up BEHIND a
Linksys firewall. Not sure what you were told.

Hmm. Are you sure it was RR? IANARRE, but all the cable modem needs to
initialize is to get talking with the headend. I don't recall having to
boot my machine at all in order to get the modem itself working.
In fact, I've had a few good chats with some budding Linux users in the
TW support department. None of my dealings with TW has indicated any
real bias against Linux. Just don't expect them to jump in and assist
you with Linux if your modem drops offline.
