We need to know more about the environment to provide quality help.  Found one hit at the Microsoft Knowledge Base when searching specifically for Fatal Exception 06, the link is below. It's a start.  There are lots of causes for Fatal Exceptions errors, so it is key to know the hardware and software setup.

I agree with astaec:  what steps, specifically, are you taking when you "install" the modem?  Is it internal modem?  Do you already have hardware on ComPorts 1 & 2?

I suggest that you tell your friend to get a different modem (if it is not too late), even if the fatal exception problem can be solved.  Rockwell modems are frequently posted about here.  They often can't get the promised speed and have a lot of other problems.   One recent post was from a ISP administrator asking what he could do about the problems they have with the rockwells.

However, if he is stuck with this modem, I suspect that problem is one that will be addressed in the following article.  If the modem is installed without conflicts and with the right drivers, it should work. Please see:
