First, Fedora 6 is very, VERY old...the latest is version 11, I'd strongly suggest you download and install that. Aside from the greater variety of hardware supported, you'll be in a more 'current' OS, with better security, and more software support.
And since you have a 'Winmodem', I'd suggest http://www.linuxant.com
. They product fax/modem drivers for Linux. Free versions are available, and a 'full' version (supports 56k and full faxing), is only $20.
As far as an application to 'make calls' (I'm assuming you mean a dialer), KPPP is one for the KDE desktop, along with some for Gnome, and wvdial for the command line.
