The situation you are describing is fairly common. You would need the following hardware.

1.) PC w/NIC - faster is better, at least 1GHz
2.) Analog Card, here are some supported ones ( asterisk.org/index.php?menu=hardware )
3.) SIP / IAX Phone ( software based or hardware based ) there are some free software SIP phones like X-Lite by Xten

As far as configuring asterisk, here are three sites that have good information about setting up what you are looking to do.

www.asteriskguru.com/tutorials/
www.asteriskdocs.org
www.asterisk.org
voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk ( personal favorite )

I don’t know if I’ve seen an exact howto for what you are trying to do, but you should be able to piece it together based on the knowledge on those sites.

Hope this helps, repost if you have more questions,
Dan
