I doubt if you'd be able to do this FREE as the Telecomms operator still charges a fee for connecting the call at the other end.
maybe "skype" software can do what you want... but i don't think its free... check it out though

Lockergnome Windows Digest] Compressed Necessity and the Adapter  Date: 3/17/2002 11:18:12 AM Pacific Standard Time From: subscriptions@lockergnome.com PicoPhone v1.31 [88k] W9x/2k/XP FREE

{Talk to others online} If you've ever tried to communicate via anInternet phone, you know how complex and annoying it can sometimesbe. This fabulous non-phony phoner makes it easier, though it doeshelp to have some knowledge of Internet telephony and how itworks. The client even allows multiple callers, so you can set upconference calls. "PicoPhone uses a simple UDP-based protocol,which works very well with NAT. The program accepts connections onUDP port 11676 and makes connection to that port." ShouldMicrosoft's Messenger or Netmeeting be giving you headaches,consider giving PicoPhone a run. What have you got to lose but alarge long distance bill? It's not even a dollar

Why not use PC-toPC instead? It is always free, as long as we dont think of ISP bills...

You know there are many many phone cards on the market now - sure it's not using your PC to call your relatives but the one I use (Daybreak) charges 0.5c per minute to call the USA.

If you want to call your relatives' telephone (as opposed to their PC) I think my Daybreak phone card is by far the cheapest way at half a cent per minute. You can also call most places in europe including the UK, and some Asian countries for the same rate.

http://downloads-zdnet.com.com/3150-2349-0.html

but Net2phone.com is pretty close.....2 cents per minute in US and as low as 3 cents to many countries. You can talk to most countries for 20 minutes less than $1. I use it when travelling. It gives you your account in the US so if you are outside USA and make calls back to USA from some country, it thinks you are calling USA from USA so only 2 cents.
example:
Us $ 0.020
United Kingdom $ 0.049
Buenos Aires $ 0.069
Sydney $ 0.039
Canada $ 0.039
France $ 0.049
Hong Kong $ 0.050
Italy $ 0.059
Malaysia $ 0.089
Philippines $ 0.190
Moscow $ 0.059
Spain $ 0.049
PC2PCsm $ 0.000

Not sure but this card may be for calls made from Australia only.
What country do you live in?
