For information, the inittab form is:


You're didn't work because both had the same <id>, so init will only
rung the 2nd one once the first line with the same id is done.  But it
will never be done, because it's a "respawn" type job.

By chancing the ids to "fax1" and "fax2" as David suggests, they are
different jobs that init can run at the same time.
