[asterisk-users] Cisco Distinctive ring using alert-info

I've got a cisco 7960, with (amongst many others) the following in the 

Foghorn         foghorn.raw

I can manually select this for the ringtone. However, I was wanting to 
use a normal ringtone, with foghorn being used if the call was coming in 
from the girlfriend/wife/mother-in-law etc ;)

I was trying to use the following:

exten => 5711,1,SIPAddHeader("Alert-Info: <Foghorn>")
exten => 5711,n,Dial(SIP/5711)
exten => 5711,n,Hangup()

However, not matter what I try, I get the standard ringtone. If I use

exten => 5711,1,SIPAddHeader("Alert-Info: <Bellcore-dr3>")

then I get a different ringtone.

Can you tell the 7960 to play a certain ringtone, or are you limited to 
a certain set ?
