Yes, it seems to be kind of a common problem -- I hope it will be
fixed for the final release of potato.  After loading your card,
execute (as root):
    IRQ=$(setserial /dev/$DEVICE | sed -e 's/^.*IRQ: //')
    setserial /dev/$DEVICE irq 0
    setserial /dev/$DEVICE irq $IRQ
If that works (i.e., your modem is detected -- use minicom), I suggest
you modify /etc/pcmcia/serial accordingly or (easier) update to
pcmcia-cs 3.1.14-1 (in woody).

Good luck,
