I use the fax programs referred to by beeuuem, Windows Messaging and Fax, which are on both Win95 and 98 installation disks as Awfax.exe and wms.exe.
Windows Messaging is very similar in layout and operation to Outlook Express.
The fax program includes cover pages design facilities and does everything that most people want.
To get your fax number (I use to use FaxMe until the service packed up last year) go to Tiscali's website and you can acquire a free personal mail phone number; the sender pays the modest phone charge to send you a fax (with outgoing faxes, of course, being sent using Fax/Windows Messaging).
