need equipment and/or software to record phone conversation then transcribe it

we need some sort of transcription equipment to be able to record a voice conversation over the phone (someone dictating over the phone) and then either the person can replay and type it out or have the software do it. this has to connect to a Meridian phone.

thanks for all the suggestions. we ended up getting an olympus digital recorder, which we then connect to computer and upload the audio file. then using dragon naturally speaking transcribe the text from the audio file. the result has been less then stellar, with the text being pretty much unusable. we didn't train it for the voice on the phone, so I am thinking that may be a problem.
