if /dev/ham exists, try making a symbolic link to /dev/modem
ln -s /dev/ham /dev/modem
Your dial up wizard won't know to look for /dev/ham, but will probably find
/dev/modem. if that doesn't work, try a /dev/ttyS[x] hack, eg.
ln -s /dev/ham /dev/ttyS3
have a look and see what ttyS devices you already have, then pick the next
highest number (or ttyS0 if you don't have any).
Hope that helps,
