Question about Email-to-Fax setup

Dear all,
I am trying to following the procedure from postfix faq but I have problem understanding how to do a few things specified:
1. How do advertise my fax.domain.com in the DNS?
2. I don't have /etc/postfix/transport file, do I just create it and add the entry there?
3. I don't have main.cf in my Debian install, do I just simply create one and add these two lines there?
4. How do I specifiy dbm or hash file? 
Here is the faq answer, but I don't quite understand how to do it on Debian. 
        fax       unix  -       n       n       -       1       pipe
            flags= user=fax argv=/usr/bin/faxmail -d -n ${user}

        fax.your.domain   fax:localhost

        transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
        fax_destination_recipient_limit = 1

Specify dbm instead of hash if your system uses dbm files instead of db files. To find out what map types Postfix supports, use the command postconf -m.

Note: be sure to not advertise fax.your.domain in the DNS 

Thank you very much for your inputAny help will be greatly appreciated.
