For hylafax it will probably look like a common modem.
You can use also PCI ISDN cards by AVM (www.avm.de) which are able to 
communicate via CAPI and there are linux drivers for them.
In addition you need capi4hylafax. I don't know how it is in mandrake, but 
e.g. SUSE has AVM drivers and capi4hylafax in the distro...
