cannot fax with kdeprintfax

I have FC4 on my laptop. My employer insist that I have a fax machine at home so I am trying to set up efax on the laptop.

When I try to fax I get teh message:

Sending to fax using: /usr/bin/fax NAME="'Baracuda'" DEV='modem' PAGE='letter' send '9999999999' '/home/george/My Downloads/faxtest.tif'
/bin/sh: /usr/bin/fax: No such file or directory
Where is the /usr/bin/fax suppose to come from? Is it part of eFax or kdeprintfax? Where do I get it to install it?

I have the same problem with kdeprintfax, using mgetty. The only help I can give you is the next:
1. Use kdeprintfax as root (press ALT+F2, write 'kdesu kdeprintfax')
2. Take care of your language. I thing that support only english when convert the text to postscript (with enscript command).
