Windows 7: How can I share Windows Fax & Scan with Homegroup in Win7 Pro x64 SP1?

How can I share Windows Fax & Scan with Homegroup in Win7 Pro x64 SP1?

I am a dummy when it comes to networking. However, I have successfully setup homegroup with 4 computers with a shared printer at my boss's office.

I also have a workstation and 2 laptops running Windows 7 Pro SP1 that I would like to send faxes with.

What I want to do is to install a 56k fax/modem (PCI or USB?) on the workstation and share the fax with the 2 laptops. Is fax sharing possible through homegroup? If not how can I share the fax with the 2 other laptops.
