You need this driver:

The procedure is

tar xvzf pctel-0.9.7-9-rht-6.tar.gz
cd pctel-0.9.7-9-rht-6
sudo ./setup

You may need some programming support packages to be installed (gcc, make, kernel headers) if they are not already.

Hardrake is telling you here that it detects the device but you need a driver for it.
