I have the same kind of modem, and had to use the rpm here to make it work...

You'll probably have to use rpm2cpio or rpm2tgz to extract the files

/bin/3ComMdm
/etc/rc.d/init.d/serial
/usr/man/man1/3ComMdm.1

edit the serial init file, and change the line
COMPORT=/dev/ttyS3
to
COMPORT=/dev/ttyS4

then create this symlink to run it on every startup
cd /etc/rc.d/rcsysinit.d
ln -s ../init.d/serial S75serial

and then..
mknod /dev/ttyS4 c 5 67

Will make the device file you need
