I tested BT on RH9 when I first got my T68i. I wanted to play with it :-) I 
found an app that would show the phone's CID on screen when a call came in. 
I also got Multisync running to sync my phone to evolution. I'm sure I 
could've used the serial port provided by BT to go online.

It'd be really cool if there could be a BT module for MythTV, or maybe a 
multisync module which let you see the sync status. Something that could 
interact with MythPhone and MythMail (hint hint) for an addressbook would be 
even cooler :-)

The bluetooth subsystem on the redhat fedora line should work (I think it's 
BlueZ). At least, it works as of RH9, I can only imagine it still works on FC2.
