You would want to put an UART of 16550A, do it in /etc/rc.boot/0setserial
and just change the uart argument.

Q1: Is it a PnP modem? If it is, you will need to download and run
Q2: It seems that it's not a Winmodem, but just in case recheck.
ALso, try downloading wvdial package, it helps to configure the modem.
But I think that if the port is configured properly, and pon still can't
do anything ( When you run pon, do you hear a click when modem
initializes? Technicly, pon will not display anything. The only way you
know htat it worked is because you have the connection to the net, or just
check through plog, it will tell you why pon can not connect.)
