Well, fedora core 2 runs on the 2.6 kernel adn there's no way you can install a 2.4 kernel driver on it.You need to get the 2.6 kernel driver for HSP56.And I don't think there's one available.
Anyway, internal modems are not supported by the kernel.So you'll only be left with partial control over the modem,if you amanage to get it installed.
