pentium II fax and or answering machine

My computor is a compaq presario 4860. I have one telephone line and would like to be able have my computor's fax and an answering machine of some kind hooked up at the same time. I THINK that the salesman said it was possible to set up fax and answering system on or with computor when we bought it.  Please give me directions, hardware, software, etc.  Thanks

if you have a voice modem then yes this can be done, look at the back where you put the lead in and see if you have a small head phone jack and a mike jack,
if yes then you need a voice-faxing software like winfax or bitcom ect.. these can be found by looking for there home site , on www.google.com and put in winfax ect.....
they are shore to have working shareware
and thats all, install it and setup your messages ectand fax cut over and you should be away..
there are some software that can do the same on a standard modem but i have not used them, they must work or they would not make the software,, have a look at the sites and read the info on bitfax and winfax... have fun

I would probably have x'd the excellent spot if I was a little more literate and a lot more confident.  As is, the advice sounds doable to me, and I'm going to try to do what the expert recommends.  Thanks, June=ie
