Well, I got the make command to work finally, but it looks like something went wrong. Here's a log of what happened:
linux:/home/plantperson/Files/Intel536-4.68 # make clean
cd coredrv; make clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/plantperson/Files/Intel536-4.68/coredrv'
rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/plantperson/Files/Intel536-4.68/coredrv'
rm -f *.o

The modem still doesn't work, and it just doesn't look right, does it?

Another possible solution:

I had to "dumb down" my modem, since it was not running in "stupid mode" (honestly! that's what they call it ). That just means changing the parameter in the modem configuration file like
stupid mode yes
I did it with Yast -> Internet -> Modem -> change (selected modem) -> next -> check in the tick box -> stupid mode on -> Finish...

Should be easier than compiling .
