if you only wanted to send text to a fax machine there is
an old program floating around on the web called ssfax

it is a dos utility, or at least it was, but it might have been
ported by now to other os's...

it is a command line utility that can take a text file and
send it to a fax machine. if you are not running your website
or if your client is not running his site off a windows box, its
easy enough to just put the form and the faxing routine on
another box. keep in mind that you'll need a separate modem
for this faxing function. maybe more then one, ??

if ya want it, just go to yahoo and search for ssfax or
ssfaxer. the guy that wrote this program was from some
little town in texas.

a second option might be to look at the dialogic expansion
cards. www.dialogic.com  they have some really nice faxing
options available.
