I can definitively say "yes, it's supported" (I am using that, and I also
happen to be hostmaster at ntl.com).
I haven't tried the USB connection, but with an ethernet card it works fine.
The only caveat is that if he's using a different ethernet card than one he's
previously used with the same account (e.g., if he's moving the cable modem
from a windows machine), then he may need to turn the cable modem off for a
period up to four hours before it will allow him to reconnect with a different
MAC address (I know...).
An empty /etc/dhclient.conf should work just fine.
get the cool shoe shine
