I suggest efax ( and its' counterpart efax-gtk. Although I don't think you can "print to fax" with this, you can print to a Postscript file and pick it up with efax-gtk GUI, type in the fax number and press send. I found it considerably less complicated than either hylafax or mgetty+sendfax.

Using a Thinkpad X40, I had zero success with the onboard "Winmodem" and after much fiddling gave up and used an old PCMCIA modem - it worked straightaway.
