    What do I need to do to so that people can send me faxes to my computer? I'm waiting on some important documents and I don't have a fax machine. Thanks.

    Windows XP has a fax program included on the CD, it just may not be installed.
    Go to Add or Remove programs in the control panel, and then click on Add/Remove Windows Components. Install Fax Services.

    That's what I do. I used to pay for a local number until I realized I wasn't getting many faxes anymore since email has mostly replaced it. Now I have a free eFax number somewhere out of state. If people need to fax me that badly, they can pay the charges. Its great getting the faxes as email attachments. No more wasting money printing junk faxes.
