I've been using my Verizon XV6800 (HTC Titan) with WM 6.1, 
ActiveSync/RNDIS and NetworkManager on Fedora 11 without problems.  NM 
just detects it as a USB network device.  I do have to start IntShrUI 
on the phone (Internet Connection Sharing UI) and start the 
connection.  If you don't do the IntShrUI step, you will get a 169.254 
IP address that doesn't work for the Internet.  Once the IntShrUI 
connection is made, I get a 192.168 IP that is NATted by the phone to 
the Verizon IP.

Network Connection sharing via NM has also been working great, sharing 
the RNDIS connection via 802.11 wireless.
