look in the VoIP-wiki for lots of useful asterisk stuff.

In short ser will route to asterisk, asterisk will take this call, in 
its sip channel, and based on number being dialed, route out via a 
context in extensions.conf to a zap channel,

You need to have the e1 lines coming into the asterisk box, for which 
you will need the correct hardware installed. Otherwise just send it our 
over SIP to a end provider.
