Only if you have ADSL and an old dial-up modem still connected to the 'phone line aswell as your ADSL modem.

Actually, that holds true for cable BB too, if you have a dial-up modem connected to the phone line aswell as your BB connection. It's not possible if no dial-up modem is installed or connected. If you require a dial-up modem for faxing, disconnect it when it's not in use.
