Do you have a URL for vgetty information handy?

My requirements:
	- FAX recieve (and ideally send, and even more ideally the
	  ability to do same-call FAX-on-demand).
	- Distinctive (aka alternate) ring detection -- phone rings with
	  pattern one, ring N times, then answer as voice. If pattern
	  two, answer immediately as FAX.
	- Multiple voice mail boxes and prerecorded messages,
	  selected by DTMF functions.
I don't need:
	- ability to handle multiple lines
	- ability to transfer calls (Centrex, etc)
