Linux Box Dedicated to Record Phone Calls

I am attempting to make a linux box that will act as a phone conversation recorder. I am aware of all the legal ramifications and as long as the other party knows they are being recorded this is legal.

What I don't know is how to go about setting up this box. All help is appreciated.

I'm think that would be possible using Asterisk, but I've never tried. You could even have it play a recorded warning that the call is being recorded.

Edit: I've noticed that this thread is a duplicate of another thread. Posting more than one thread will not get your question answered faster.

Yes I did post that thread first but I thought this forum would be the more appropriate place for the question that is the reason I asked it here. Thanks for your responce but Asterisk appears to require special equipment from Digium. What I am looking for is something similar to these windows programs.

Advanced Call Recorder
Call Corder

There are many great call recorders that are freeware and Windows Based. However, I don't want to use those because of windows need to be rebooted, especially Windows 98. I have an old AMD K6 that I want to use as a phone recorder. For stability (Set it up and leave it alone) I want to use a Linux OS. However I cannot locate a linux recording software.

Most full-duplex voicemodems are also supported by Asterisk. These could plug directly into the phone line. Alternatively, you could get a small box that will connect your phone line to your soundcard, and Asterisk will support any OSS or ALSA full-duplex sound card.

Do you know where in the documentation using a modem is outlined. Everything I have read states you need a Digium card.
