What makes you think it's in landscape?  Is it actually rotated, or does the
"squashed" appearance throw you off?  "Standard" fax resolution is actually
non-square dpi, so "stupid" tiff viewers which make assumptions about the
dpi of the image will render as squashed.  You can "line-double" it in a
tool like Photoshop (uncheck the "retain aspect ratio" option before doing it).

I've never seen a hylafax install save the files rotated 90 degrees in
"true" landscape format though.  Maybe your image viewer is making improper
assumptions about the image?  On Wintendo, try IrfanView, on Macintosh try
GraphicConverter, on UNIX try gv.
