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


edit the serial init file, and change the line

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
