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,
