Don't have an answer - but be aware that in some places, law requires  
you to notify the other party that it is being recorded, and sometimes,  
law requires that it beep every few minutes.

Don't know if that is true in New Zealand or not, but it may be.

When I've done that sort of thing, I've always gone from a phone to the  
line-in. The soundcard probably has better analog to digital conversion  
for voice than most modems would.
