Also, Fedora 6 is ancient. The latest version is FC10...I'd suggest upgrading, as it may fix some of the problems you're having.

your right TBone but keeping the old modules up for the pctel and the newer has become a problem. the modem phases out and the kernel keeps changing. I know the 2.6.18 was a kernel tree change and it took awhile for some people to get the build right for it. 2.6.18 also brought in a lot of new wifi stuff. the lucent chip is still being kept up by the Martian.
