  Dos, Crt;

  REGS : Registers;

Function CheckRing(Comport : Byte) : Boolean;
  fill(Regs, SizeOf(Regs), 0);    {Reset All Registers}
  Regs.AH := 3;
  Regs.DX := Comport - 1;
  Intr($14, Regs);
  CheckRing:= ((Regs.Al and $40) = $40);

 The Function comes back True only when a ring is currently happening so
you can:

  Until CheckRing(2);      {Or Whatever comport}
  Delay(1000);             {Give it a sec}
  Writeln_Fossil('ATA'); {Or Whatever you use to Interface w/ the fossil}
  While not CarrierDetect do Delay(250); {Suffecient Time}

  Well that should answer the phone, now if you want to check the baud
you can read a line from the modem or something.
