In need of someone patient to help set up PCMIA Verizon modem card.

I am trying to follow the directions to do this at:

http://www.ka9q.net/5220.html

I am running Suse Pro 9.2 on my Toshiba laptop. It runs Suse very well,
but I am having some difficulties. (I tried to contact the author, to
no avail as of yet).


Where I am stuck is when I run dmesg, the return includes the following:


Feb 19 14:03:08 linux kernel: usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using
address 4
Feb 19 14:03:08 linux kernel: usb 5-1: Product: AirPrime CDMA Wireless
PC Card
Feb 19 14:03:08 linux kernel: usb 5-1: Manufacturer: AirPrime, Incorporated
Feb 19 14:03:08 linux kernel: NET: Registered protocol family 17

I was expecting something like this:

usbserial.c: Generic converter now attached to ttyUSB0 (or usb/tts/0 for
devfs)
usb.c: serial driver claimed interface c55f9a20
usbserial.c: Generic converter detected
usbserial.c: Generic converter now attached to ttyUSB1 (or usb/tts/1 for
devfs)
usb.c: serial driver claimed interface c55f9a38

Can someone explain what the usb 5-1 stuff is? Why doesn't it show as
something like ttyUSB_ ?
