I am making the assumption that you are using Windows XP.
Firstly, you will need to make sure that your computer has a dialup modem.  A lot of PCs don't have them by default nowadays, but internal ones are really cheap, and easy to install.
Windows has a great little built in fax service.  It is not installed by default but you can install it by going to control panel > add / remove programs > Windows Components.
Just go through the list and check 'fax service', and press OK.
It will probably ask you for your Windows CD at this point, so have that ready.
Once the fax service is installed, it should appear in your list of printers.
The rest is pretty straight forward, you just print your document to the fax printer, and then follow the prompts.
Good luck!
