You should be able to click the Madrake Control Center(or DrakConf) icon and
select Network and Internet Configuration.  From there you can configure any
type of net connection(including cable).  HTH

> So, has anyone in the Toronto area connected a Mandrake computer to the
> internet using Rogers at home cable modems?
> Or if anyone can show me to a really great tutorial on this topic that
