There’s a current thread called “wvdial problem” that you should read:
it seems to be dealing with the same problems. Certainly people seem to
have got dial-up to work with Fedora.

Having said that, note that you may find it difficult to keep Fedora
up-to-date over a dial-up connection: there are a lot of updates, many
of which are security-related. The yum-presto package will transfer them
more efficiently, but you may still want to occasionally plug these
systems into a faster connection (or find some other way of getting
large updates to them).

Hope this helps,
