Red Hat Linux 6.0 is too old to have UMTS support

Red Hat Linux 6.0 (Hedwig) was released April 26, 1999 and
was based on Linux 2.2.5-15 kernel.
UMTS only had its very first specification released in 1999.
RF spectrum was allocated/auctioned in 2001 - 2004, only then could actual products appear.
To use Your USB2.0 UMTS "modem"/transceiver device, You should get yourself a much more modern Linux, which actually has driver support for such devices. I would recommend tests with a seperate PC or using a Live Image System (does not change Your Redhat Linux/does not need a hard disk/SSD at all, boots from a CD, DVD or flash storage). I like Knoppix for that purpose, You might prefer a Redhat Fedora /Live system.

I hope this helps.

please post the output of this
cat /etc/redhat-release
RH6 is VERY ancient ( name change with RH9 to RHEL3 )
the current RHEL 6.0,6.1,6.2,6.3,6.4
( RHEL 6.4 is the current)
also RHEL6 is not free
you MUST buy the support contract !! -- there is no way around that
instal one of the free rebuilds like
CentOS 6.4
