"Just about every modem these days comes with voice capability.
Given the right tools, your modem can double as an answering
machine too. Linux doesn't leave your modem out in the cold. There
is a very good utility that can be used to setup your modem to
provide the same functionality."
"We'll be using Vgetty, part of the mgetty package. The official
site is http://alpha.greenie.net/vgetty. You probably not have to
visit the site because just about every distribution carries it. We
grabbed the mgetty package off our SuSE CD. The version used is
1.1.12. Alternatively, you can download the release along with the
mgetty source package from http://aplha.greenie.net/mgetty. The
latest version on site that we saw on the site was 1.1.25. Grab the
source if you like.'
