Distinctive ring when calling extensions

I have Asterisk set up at home. I would like incoming callers to be greeted with a menu prompting them to select which person in the family they want to speak to. Once the selectection is made, I want to dial all extensions in the house with a distinctive ring so family members know who the call is for.

I got the menu stuff handled, but don’t know to implement the distinctive ringing. Is that possible? How can that be done?

Thanks for the links, that’s what I was after.

Is it possible to specify distinctive rings for IAX channels?
