    Hi, I have an old PowerMac G3, (Yosemite) and I thought about adding a 56k fax modem to it just for kicks. Question is: will a PCI fax modem work in the powermac g3? It's running Mac OS X and the modem is rather new. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    If it's stock, the modem in it already acts as a fax modem (you just need the software installed, it was either called ifax or macfax or something like that).

    EDIT: Sorry, I'm forgetting (been a while since I had a land line)--in OSX you don't need software at all.
