fax receiving is not a very popular requested feature, according to what
i read on some kde threads. However, here a are a few hints worth trying

To *send* fax, you can simply create a fax printer in you kde printers
(this part is very easy...)

To received fax, it seems you are going to use a fax server application,
that may need a bit of configuration.
You might either go with efax (and it's user interface efax-gtk) or you
might go with the more complexe hylafax.

Hope this help, am not experienced with faxing.
