So?  All you'd be throwing away are the very dated ISA/EISA cards in the
very dated PC that's running the current phone system.

You sure as heck don't need to install SIP phones to build a full
Asterisk based telephone system!  Have a look at the fully supported
Digium line cards, for example, or consider a good T1 channel bank (or
several) with a Digium T1 card (or several)

IAX or SIP phones can be installed as there's a need to replace broken
old plain telephones.

The only time you have to throw away phones is when they're totally (and
I mean _TOTALLY_) restricted to some proprietary KEY system, i.e. they
cannot be made to work as plain old telephones on a plain old tip&ring
2-wire analog circuit.
