If you're going to use a hardware hog Linux distro, use the piggiest one - OpenSuSE 10.2. If you're stuck on FC8, try installing minicom, and see if it will connect using the modem. Then, try pppd (man pppd) to connect. That's what you use for dial-up, but dial-up with Linux is like trying to swim across the ocean.
