I tried to get the driver for the 536ep (I assume you mean 537ep?) modem to
work in FC2. I managed to compile it and insert the kernel module, but
accessing the modem caused the syetem to lock up.

Unfortunately, I don't think these drivers will yet work with a 2.6 kernel,
certainly not with the >= 2.6.5 kernel supplied with Fedora Core. I noticed
SUSE originally had drivers for their 9.1 distribution (with 2.6 kernel)
but that these have now disappeared.

See http://www.mirrors.net.ar/pub/suse/i386/update/9.1/rpm/src/

Intel are apparently working on the drivers, but I've given up and bought an
external serial modem on eBay. Now I can be sure it'll work even when we
are on a 2.8 or 3.x kernel!
