    You cannot simply call from a PC to a phone without going through a server at the destination so this requires using some form of service similar to those that can be found in Yahoo messenger and ICQ.
    Other low rate services are http://www.dialpad.com/
    If you are looking for free PC to Phone calls I think they are a thing of the past.
    As for using a normal phone on a DSL line you can't do it through the DSL modem and you cannot make a 56K and DSL connection at the same time.
    You can add a normal phone, fax of other telephony device to a DSL line using a special filter for each device.
