My Red Hat is "off" to the Fedora developers!!!!!  I thought I might
finally get some experience tweaking the kernel, but all I had to do was
to use /dev/ttyACM0 and was able to directly connect to the modem.
Looks like /dev/ttyACM0 is created when you plug in the modem to one of
the usb ports.  I made this in to a hard problem when actually it was a
real plug and play!!!!

Thanks for everyone's help!!!
