Setting up fax printing on Mandrake 8.2 through CUPS,...???

I am wondering if anyone has set up fax printing cababilities in Mandrake Linux 8.2 through CUPS.

I installed the Fax printing CUPS RPM and even installed GFAX and the necessary Mgetty stuff.

I tried to set it up through the WWW.CUPS Admin tool. No dice. The job appears when I take a look at the job administration, but it doesn't launch anything to set the telephone number or anything...

I can't even get the think to fax a file from kfax or gfax....

Does anyone know how to do the fax printing thing or even know the ins and outs of setting up just plain faxing???
