I'm pretty sure we just covered this topic _yesterday_, but...

No, Hylafax won't drive an ISDN _terminal adapter_.  This, regardless
of _what_ people call things, is _not_ the same thing as an "ISDN
_modem_" -- an ISDN interfaced device that _is_ a modem.  The only ones
that come to mind off hand are the USR products, particularly the
Courier I-Modem.  Devices like this will talk to an analog modem at the
other end of a call, standard Terminal Adaptors will not.

Whether the I-Modem's modem firmware does T.30 fax or not, I don't
know.  I'd expect it would, but I can't guarantee it.

There _is_ a reason those things are alomst $500...
