Typically, in parallel -- that is, just plug them all into the phone line. The computer, and the answering machine, may have a "convenience" jack which you can plug another device into, but in almost all cases that's just wired in parallel with the line jack and does nothing but save you the trouble of going out and getting a modular-jack two-to-one adapter.
