seeing as RHEL 5.6 ( the current in the 5 series )
or RHEL 6.0 - the current , are NOT free and you MUST have a license that you bought
try the red hat web site
rhel is very well documented there.

a usb dongle in rhel5.5/5.6 or cent 5.5 will be "fun" to say the least
the current ubuntu or fedora or SUSE will auto detect it
but rhel ( a server distro) on a laptop ??? fun fun fun
see

you will need to change the kernel - not an easy task in rhel

have a look at google

Huawei E160/E220 in Slackware 13.0 (solution)

To get your USB dongle (Huawei E160 or Huawei E220) to work: (Slackware Linux 13.0 - kernel 2.6.38.6 but may work on other linux versions)

Step 1: Ensure PPP is compiled into your kernel

Step 2: Ensure that you kernel does not spew any errors or does not panic (see kernel compilation howto in /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs)

Step 3: Ensure that your kernel supports USB storage

Step 3a: Ensure that kernel supports USB-Serial (generic usb_serial driver should work)

Step 4: obtain software called comgt (http://sourceforge.net/projects/comgt/)

Step 5: Boot your computer (LOL!)

Step 6: At command prompt login (duh!)

Step 7: su as root user (login as regular user, issue command "su" and put root password - risky to login directly as root)

Step 8: Uncompress comgt.032.tgz (tar -xvzf comgt.032.tgz)

Step 9: Build the comgt and install comgt

Step 10:Insert Huawei modem

Step 11: Huawei modem shall be detected as CD-ROM drive (/dev/sr1 or /dev/sdb) instead of a 3g modem (check using "dmesg")

Step 12: To switch modes of modem from CD-ROM to a modem, you need to eject the Huawei CD-ROM device using the command (eject
/dev/sr1 or eject /dev/sdb or eject /dev/<whatever is in you dmesg>)

Step 13: To switch modes of huawei modem, use comgt
"comgt -x -d /dev/-usb device-" where -usb device- is ttyUSB0 or ttyUSB1 -- e.g. "comgt -x -d /dev/ttyUSB0"
Some message should display giving you the network provide name and the signal strength!

Step 14: Point /dev/modem to your Huawei modem at e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0. If /dev/modem does not exist, then create it LOL! "ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/modem"

Step 15: Exit as root user and login as regular user! (if using "su" simply type exit)

Step 16: Start your dialer program - wvdial or kppp

Step 17: Konfigure your dialer and dial!

Step 18: A new device "ppp0" will be listed in list of networking hardware (check this using "ifconfig")

Step 19: Make sure your put your DNS server addresses in "/etc/resolv.conf" in format "nameserver -DNS server-" where -DNS server- is ip address of DNS server of your ISP

Step 20: Enjoy surfing!
-END-
