 A $10 Linux Answering Machine

I think I would start with Asterisk but I love a steep learning curve (apparently) this looks to be a simpler approach but without the huge amount of flexibility that Asterisk offers.

"This article describes how to build a Linux-based telephone answering machine using a low cost winmodem (softmodem) for the telephone interface. We describe how to install the drivers and libraries, and how to select and install the proper modem card. Our answering machine program is a couple of hundred lines of C code in a single file. If you've ever used a telephone you should have no trouble understanding the code."
