I need to put a PIX 501 in behind a cable modem. What configuration do I need so the Pix will recieve an address?

I need to put a Cisco Pix 501 Firewall behind a cable modem.  I've done this before when I've had staic IPs to use, but this time I don't.  Is there a way I can configure the Pix to recieve a IP address from the cable modem?  Thanks
