! don't have Suse and have never used it, but a 5-minute search on the
Internet returned that this is a kernel from around mid 2001 that gave
streams problems and caused a lot of failures with streams related
matters. You could say that streams is a way of passing information from
hardware drivers to the kernel.

4GB means that the kernel will support maximum 4GB RAM. 

The general consensus is, that this is a very old kernel and one that
gave a lot of problems - you should download and install the newest. 

Since Suse Linux 7.1 there's been 7.3 and 8.0.

Your hardware combination is supported by the standard HSF linux
drivers, according to the documentation.

Tip! go to http://www.mbsi.ca/cnxtlindrv/hsf/archive/?M=D and download
one of the hsflinmodem-5.03.03.L3mbsibeta02062500 drivers - src.rpm or
.tar.gz and compile and install this particular one.

For the latest driver:

Go to http://www.mbsi.ca/cnxtlindrv/hsf/downloads-license.html to
download either Binary or source rpms - you can also download a tar.gz
version and compile and install yourself.

You'll find docs on the download page. You'll get complete instructions
for what you have to do during the installation. The modules will be
automatically installed for you.

Use the srpm or the tar.gz and compile either one of these.

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
