Note that I'm no expert on this kind of configuration, but this sounds 
pretty easy.  Get a channel bank (or better yet, just get a T1 from the 
ILEC) and a Digium card. Configuring voicemail and extensions is pretty 
easy, just look at voicemail.conf.  The only puzzling part is the data 
feed... what's it for, determining which line is ringing which voicemail 
box?  If so, perhaps it can be converted to DNIS on the T1?
