I have not done this personally, but I have Mediaone, and I do 
monotor the various M1X newsgroups. There are quite a few people who 
are using various network configurations on Mediaone. First, you can 
use either the Linux or Windows95 system as the host. You would need 
to have a NIC for the cable modem as well as a separate NIC for your 
internal network. 

There is also several FAQs maintained on using a LAN with a cable 
modem. If I dont see those URLs posted by the time I get home 
tonight, I'll post them.
