I have a Sony PCG-FX501 lapop with Windows XP, I am considering installing SuSE Linux 9.0 Professional, If I did install Linux would I still be able to use my 56K modem or not?

You can check out the hardware compatibility on the linux website.

Its doubtful that it will support all modems, but you can try.

however if you cannot obtain a driver then you would need to create your own.
