please upgrade to the latest version of the HCF PCI driver that you can 
download from the HCF PCI driver download page at :


we have added in this new release improved support for 'udev' and the 
'/dev/modem' symlink will now be automatically generated by 'udev' when 
the driver is inserted into the kernel.
