One very good suggestion would be to visit the site link below. In the first sentence is a highlighted link called "archives" where you can browse these archives from today back to way back when, you may find a related thread with the answers. I'm not sure which modem that is exactly, but do know derivers need to be compiled, which means you must have kernel-source or kernel-headers installed. They also have a small downloadable tool called scanModem with a link to info and download link on that page also, when used, it will tell you exactly what you need to do. It may tell you SUSE has pre-compiled drivers or a script as you seem to suggest you have, in which case you need kernel-source, it may also come back and tell you where to get the proper source for compiling. In any event, this tool will give all necessary/needed info.
