Promate GRPS PCMCIA card o Linux


At he moment i have installed a POS with SuSE 10.3 but am having a problem in recognizing the device name. If i try with a GlobeTrotter EDGE GPRS card its recognised /dev/ttyACM0 and if its a USB it becomes /dev/ttyUSB0. This device name is the one i will pass as a pameter in comgt (ie /usr/bin/comgt -d /dev/ttyACM0) to nitialize the modem and SIM card and then configure it in wvdial. The following is the info i get when i issue dmesg command.

pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
cs: memory probe 0xec000000-0xec0fffff: excluding 0xec010000-0xec01ffff
pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0

ata1.00: revalidation failed (errno=-5)

ata1: failed to recover some devices, retrying in 5 secs
ata1: soft resetting link
ata1.00: limited to UDMA/33 due to 40-wire cable
ata1.00: configured for UDMA/33
ata1: EH pending after completion, repeating EH (cnt=4)
ata1: EH complete
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 78165360 512-byte hardware sectors (40021 MB)
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 00 3a 00 00
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
0.0: RequestIO: No more items

The issue is i have to use these specific cards as they are already bought. Please help me to identify or assign IRQ and device name or basically what i need to do to make it work. Thanks in advace

The GPRS card works fine in windows when drivers are installed this makes me believe it should work in linux. I have chosen to deploy in SuSE 10.3 since it's easy to new users in windows. Could it be possible to load the dlls in windows in linux.. even if an IRQ is not given to the card?
