I want to ensure that absolutely no third party software setup is
required on the Win95 machines at all, as such a setup will involve
maintenance, which is not ideal.

Will hylafax allow me to set up a samba print queue so this is possible?

AFAIK a Windows FAX looks like a printer to the OS, can samba be
configured as such a "printer"?
