Hang on...most implementation of PCI64 slots allows you to install a 32-bit PCI card without any trouble at all

OK, that's PCI Express (aka PCIe) v2 slots....  that's not at all the same as PCI (as they are not mechanically or electrically compatible).
So, that's means you will have to purchase another fax modem... one that's PCIe.   PCIe cards typically come as 1x (one "lane"), 4x, 8x, etc.   However, since a fax modem is a slow device, I'd expect you'll only find a 1x card.   You should be able to put that PCIe card into any slot
