    The circiut can be made very easliy out of two .1uf disk caps, and a 
10k to 600 ohm tranformer.  WARNING!  This circuit is not FCC accepted.  
   Ahem, now that I said that...  Just hook it up to the red and green wires
on the block.  The caps are to block DC to the transformer and prevent the 
Telco equipment from seeing a "off-hook" status.  In order to keep the line 
up, you should put a 1k resistor across the red and green wires.  You could 
even put a switch in series to act like a switch hook.
