Just struggling with a simular problem on a different distribution
updated to 2.0.38. Hopefully getting ISDN to run this week.

If ppp is compiled successfully into the kernel and your Fritz device
is registrated by the kernel (var/log/messages) then you might need to
upgrade "isdn4linux". This is exactly what I'm going to do tomorrow,
because isdn closes up with a E0010 after trying to dial in.
