Open office and fax printer

Anybody know how to proceed here:
I have OO 1.1 and a USR Voice fax data modem, works fine in Win.
I want to install a virtual fax printer to send faxes from OO.
So I go to the directory /usr/lib/openoffice/program/
Enter ./spadmin
Get a window
Click new printer
Click Fax printer

Here it gets tricky:

It asks me for a command line!

What the hell do I put in there??

Tea bags doesn't work, anyone got a clue what might?

My modem is on /dev/modem or ttsy0

Appreciate any help!
