You want it for just fax only right?  For fax, speed doesn't matter 
since I seem to recall, fax machines always run at 9600 baud anyway.

I'm looking at a USRobotics Sportster 14,400 Fax modem (from 1994) that 
was used twice per month to transmit payroll before the payroll service 
finally switched to internet a few years back.  It has a 25 pin female 
connector; let me know if you need a cable and/or adapter to go with it.

Is there a reason you don't use internal?  I have several isa and pci 
internal fax modems collecting dust.
