    hey folks,

    i just recently set up my pc as a fax machine and it works well. being the lazy bastard that i am however, i hate getting up to answer the phone (sigh, all the way across the room ) so... i'm going to start using my headset as a phone. now i have a high-speed connection for internet and a regular 56k modem for my fax (and hopefully phone). when my phone rings, my computer also rings (since i have fax set up) but i want to set it up so i can click "answer for fax" or "answer for voice" as well as make outgoing calls. i have searched ceaselessly for the past weekend with no luck, so i'm hoping someone out there might have an answer for me. i *know* this is possible, but ms did away with phone dialer after 98 and i'm running xp, cannot find a comparable program. anybody got any suggestions?
