Fax modems are automatically detected by Windows 2000, but it is recommended that you refer to the documentation provided with your fax modem for information about any other steps you must take to install your fax modem. When a fax modem is connected to your computer, Windows 2000 detects and installs the fax printer. However, if this does not happen, you can manually add a fax printer.
To add a fax printer
From the Start menu, point to Settings , and then click Control Panel .
Double-click Fax , click the Advanced Options tab, and then click Add a Fax Printer .
Follow the instructions in the Add Printer wizard.
