    To expand slightly on Russ's response, you can't simply share a Fax
    Printer, and the native XP Fax service does not support any form of
    sharing.

    Third party fax programs frequently do support sharing of the Fax
    service that they supply - this usually requires that their driver or
    other software be running on (and sometimes have been purchased
    separately for) both the system with the fax modem and the system from
    which the fax request originates..

    The OP was specifically asking about XP.
