slmodem error


I use the slmodem driver for my modem, in slackware I never had any problem with it ever, however I am having one in gentoo, which I can't understand:

when I go

emerge slmodem
I installs slmodem dirver, and creates the the following devices in /dev/

I use one of the slusb devices to connect to internet, via an application called

however If I go like this as I used to in slackware:
slmodemd --country=PAKISTAN /dev/slusb0
the shell says:
error: mdm setup: cannot open dev `/dev/slusb0': Device or resource busy
error: cannot setup device `/dev/slusb0'
Although I know that the device was not being used,

another problem I think is related to udev, is that these devices the slusb ones are deleted everytime the system starts up, so I end up installing the driver again and again after every restart. How do I tell udev to spare these devices?
