The hardware is an old Pentium I 200Mhz, 3 NIC's, HD, 80Meg Ram. m0n0 is 
version 1.11

The interfaces should be correct, I can use a laptop on the LAN 
interface with a flip cable and can bring up the m0n0 web pages at also I can hook the WAN interface up to the Linksys wireless 
router that I am running and  the m0n0 will grab an IP from the linksys. 
But when I hook it to the modem by itself it will not pickup an address 
and it will not show a gateway address.

As soon as I send this I will reconfigure the #3 NIC as the WAN port and 
see if that does anything. If thatt doesn't work, I think I am going to 
pull the plug for the evening and start again tomorrow.... My brain is 
turning to mush!
