I've got it running here with PSTN, ISDN and IP connected in, runs just nicely.
PSTN cards are a bit pricy and until now the problem was, that you had to put in 1 pci card for every external PSTN.
Now you can actually use the 4 ports card with different daughterboards, so mix external and internal ports on that.
ISDN is the cheapest, if you've got the phones allready. The ISDN cards are about 25-50 EUR
I've set the whole thing up with 4 international numbers tied in via IAX2 or SIP (depending on provider), one ISDN and one
On the inside i've got 4 PSTN ports, 2 ISDN phones connected to one ISDN card, one VoIP adapter (IAXy) and the possibility of
hooking softphones in.
If you need some help, let me know.
