What page did you modify to do this? one could simply change the name of an unneeded field like fax to comments and raise the max allowed characters.

I had to make minor changes in:

filesystem/var/www/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Customer/etc/config.xml
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/design/adminhtml/default/default/locale/en_US/translate.csv
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/checkout/onepage/billing.phtml
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/checkout/onepage/shipping.phtml
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/customer/address/edit.phtml
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/customer/form/address.phtml
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/design/frontend/default/default/template/sales/order/details.phtml
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/locale/en_US/Mage_Checkout.csv
filesystem/var/www/magento/app/locale/en_US/Mage_Customer.csv

The problem with modifying fax to be a comments field is that fax is set up to be part of a customer’s address info (billing and shipping).  So it wouldn’t act as an order comments field.  For that, you’d need to add the code to produce a comments box on the order page, then add a field to the MySQL table that stores order info and alter the code that saves order info to read the text in your comments box and save it.  Then, in order to see the comments, you’d need to make your order view page look for that extra field and populate it on the screen.

Wow, this sounds very interesting. Those people just needing to get customer order comments can also take a look at the first release of my community-extension Customer Order Comment.

Another way to add a comment to the checkout page is to install Delivery Date extension.  It allows customers to select preferable delivery date AND leave a comment. The module is paid, however it comes with a user manual and high-quality free email support, profession instantiation available upon request.  Live demo is here: http://demo.adjustware.com/

Unlike modules from the competitors, you can show delivery date (and comment if needed) in the admin > sales grid, in emails, use with magento API and etc,
as well as use advanced validation rules if needed (exclude holidays, weekends, etc).

p.s.  sorry for the advertisement

Hi

One more useful and robust solution is the ORDER DELIVERY DATE / INSTRUCTIONS extension. On the shipping method selection step it will offer you to specify the preferable delivery day, time and add some custom notes. At the same time, the admin can disable some specific delivery days and times.

Feel free to check.
Regards
