how to setup more than one same modem together?

I have an intel 536ep based pci modem. It works fine with official driver from intel. After driver installation, I do the following to setup device name.

insmod -f /lib/modules/2.6.10/kernel/drivers/char/Intel536.ko
mknod /dev/536ep c 240 1
The device to be used is /dev/536ep then.

My question is: If I need to setup more than one same modem under ONE system, what steps should I take to create the corresponding devices correctly? Perhaps I need only to change the parameter of mknod? If yes, what decides the correct parameter?

Any pointer will be helpful to me.
