You really don't need to set it up like you would in windows.
As long as it is plugged in, it should work. The device should be either:

/dev/cua/a - "com 1 in dos"
or
/dev/cua/b - "com 2 in dos"

To check to see if its working use a command called tip.
So if your modem is on com2 you would type:

# tip /dev/cua/b

You can then use command like atdt to dial a remote system.
To set your baud rate look at the tip man page.

# man tip
