First bit of help is "Use better subject lines" Saying "help!" doesn't make people want to stop. Second, spell out your words.

Fedora 8 is very old, Fedora 10 is the latest, and I'd suggest you try it, since it has more up to date hardware support. Also, you may want to tell people what a "reliance datacard" actually is. What kind of device? What does it do? What kind of hardware are you using?

If you want help, you're going to have to provide meaningful information.

A little brash perhaps? Not to mention the guy is Indian as far as I can tell, which may go a long way towards the tersity of his (her?) English.

Basic, the guy is after help configuring some kind of Wireless card, the manufacturer is Reliance. From what I gather, it is one of those Mobile Broadband packages.

OP: Did you get the USB or PCMCIA card? What happens when you plug it in? Please plug it in, and post the output of
Code:
dmesg|tail
and
Code:
sudo lshw |grep -1 -A 15 Reliance
Upgrading your system is probably a better bet straight away, see if the support has been added

Not meant to be 'brash', or a commentary on anything, one way or the other. The OP didn't provide decent information, and needs to if they want help, no matter if they get it here, or from a pay-for-support desk.

As far as English goes, I didn't comment on it, just asked the OP to spell out the words. However, the fact is, this is an English-speaking site, so being able to clearly write the language helps. Would be the same thing if I posted to a Russian site, because I know I'd be hard to understand, and I wouldn't be able to understand the responses I got. Same goes for l33t speak, and the word abbreviations...not everyone gets it, so it's best not to use it.

Ok...the device is a USB device. ttys0 is a serial device. You need to try ttyUSB0, or other similar device, since USB is where the device is plugged in.

Second, as I said in my first post...Fedora 8 is VERY old. Install Fedora 10, and it may pick up everything and just plain work, right off the bat. At the very least, you'll have the latest tools/drivers, which you don't have right now. And being a newbie is fine...we've all been there before, but please write more clearly.

Make it easy on yourself, install Slackware 12.2, Ubuntu 8.04 (or variants), or Debian Lenny.
