Assuming you're on broadband (but you need to pay them for access to landlines)

Dial-up, perhaps this

You've made the same misinterpretation of the OP's requirements as I did. He wants something which uses his PC's voice modem to dial his phone line.

No, I knew what he wanted (to use a dialup/voice/fax modem with a headset, plugged into the soundcard), I thought that link was correct but reading further down that page it's for ADSL: perhaps this then (you can trial it for 14 days)

What you want is not easy to find anymore (esp for free) :illogical
Though I just found this
http://www.spyfind.com/bitware.html :clap
And it says it'll work in XP (perhaps the version you have is too old :)).
