When you setup a dialup connection, there is a tab to configure the device and a drop-down menu within that in which you can pick which port (ttyS*) to use. This is about the same in Gnome as well I believe. Just pick which one you wanna use and it'll use that one.

it would be easier to set it up on another port if possible.. can you change the port assignment of the card, if it has jumpers...
