Fax from Vista Home Premium

How can I fax from Vista Home Premium vua my inbuilt laptop modem.
Is it possible to download the fax application included in the business and ultimate Vista versions?
Ideas welcome please - thanks in advance

In XP, the Fax Console can be installed from Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Add/Remove Windows Components; it may well be the same in Vista.

However, the Fax Console is apparently not available in Windows Home or Home Premium.

Thanks - It seems that Microsoft has played another mean trick for the sake of a few bob!
I have had no success in finding a solution apart from investing in more software.
Thanks again

I've used the BVRP fax tool for some time (it was supplied with a fax modem on my desktop) and it works fine with Vista Home Premium 32bit.
