Can I use my PC as a headset for VoIP or Skype?

Is there software available that will allow me to use my pc as a handset for my VoIP or Skype calls?
Yes, it is included in Skype, all you need is a microphone or a USB phone to make your machine work as a VoIP phone. Skype has a service called SkypeOut for calling land line calls. Beware however, that if you plan to use this while traveling, some ISP's block voice traffic.
