kfax and KDE fax printer combo works nicely.  It's a little tricky, but it 
does work.  I've used it extensively for things like expense reports and 
such.  Just hit Ctrl-P and select "Send to Fax" in pretty much any KDE 
program, or you could just fire up kfax and manage it there.  It's very 
simple.  I have to use an external modem for my faxing.  Remember to avoid
