I have MS Fax in Win95 setup to fax to a network fax and a Win95 box setup to run MS fax as a server. Now with W2K I can't seem to even get a fax option without a modem installed on the system let alone find the "network Fax" option. Can anyone tell me how to do this? My Win95 machines can fax through the shared PC using Outlook and I don't want to lose this with 2000.

you cannot have a fax server like win95 with MS tools.

Win98 didn't have the feature, as NT didn't

The only way is SBS for NT4 and SBS 2000.

there was also a hack of an old beta for NT

I don't want to set up a server. I already have a Win95 box for that. I just want to connect to it using a 2000 box. Having said that I can't figure out how!

If it won't be explained in the ntfax FAQ, I think it's hardly possible...

It's a good answer just not the one I wanted to hear. I'm having so many problems rolling out W2K that it's a shame I like it so much!
