I believe your modem is on the PCI bus. The above lines implement
isa devices. To get si02 on the PCI bus you'll need to remove the lines
for sio2 and sio3. Now add a line to look for serial on PCI
   device sio
Yes, without any further qualification.

For it to work the device needs to be recognised by the system PCI scanning 
software; which might or might not be the case. But at least you have a 
chance. Your present kernel configuration has no chance ;-)

# pciconf -lv 
may also be interesting to see what the software does find; have a look at the 
pciconf man page.
