Well, whenever you connect  a new device and if RH has its support then it will automatically detect the device and will ask you to configure or not. if you choose it will automatically load the required modules . So connect ur device to computer before boot and then boot it and see for "checking for new hardware" if it ask you that it has found a new device then say yes to configure it.. otherwise ask here  ..

you should check these /dev/input/ttyACM0  or  /dev/input/USB/ttyACM0 mostly USB devices goes there.. also see cat /proc/pci it will give you info of all devices connected to your computer..

hi,

i don't know what kind of device you are connected, but if it is USB just run this command sane-find-scanner -v -v, even though it is for scanners, still it works to some extent, it gives the config, interface,altsetting and endpoint info. or you can run #less /proc/usb/devices there you can find the entire usb devices connected to your pc. let you know that linux is having hotplugging!! so it will automatically detects the usb devices whenever you will connect!!
