Here's my situation:

I'm currently using a Mac Mini as the server for a temporary office of mostly Windows laptops. I'm using the mini as the server because it's so small and we have so little space.

I've got pretty much everything running smoothly, including printing and file-sharing.

However, I can't get the windows machines to connect to the Mac's fax modem.

In the Mac's "Printers & Fax" dialog there's a checkbox to allow Windows machines to send faxes using the Mac. On the Windows laptops, when I add a network printer the Mac's Internet Modem shows up on the list. However, when I try to connect to it I need to install a driver, and I cannot find one that works.

Does anybody know what I need to do to get this to work?

(Oh yeah, it's a 1.4 mhz Mini running Tiger)
