need distro that contains mgetty+sendfax
 
Is there a Linux distro that comes with mgetty+sendfax ?

:scratch: ummm.... cant you install them for distros that don't have them?

After the install, they need to be configured.
I don't know much about mgetty+sendfax so cofiguration might be problematic.
I assume that the particular distro will at the minimum attempt to do some basic configuration of mgetty+sendfax.

Besides I have a PC with a blank hard disk so I can do a fresh install at the moment.
(And I cannot make changes to the other PC which has Linux already installed because it is being heavily used.)

lothario,
SuSE used to support mgetty and sendfax, at least up to SuSE
Linux 7.0 which came out in 2001.
I do not know if they continue to support them with more recent versions:)
