Are you talking about using a third-party libarary or doing it all from scratch?  If the latter, then I'd say you're in for a lot of work!

To truly do it yourself and not use any third-party controls or libraries, then you need to learn about modems, serial port communication, faxing, and file conversion/printing.  Personally, I wouldn't know where to begin.

From scrtach you can use the mscomm control. This will interface directly with the serial port and allow you to get down to a fairly low-level. However I would not recommend this approach as fax comms are quiet complicated. I would have a crack at using the windows service first, then maybe a third part piece of software like Winfax Pro 10 or Mighty fax. You need to be more specific with what you need exactly.
