Disable bluetooth

Hi! I have FC4 system, with WindowsXP emulated using vmware.

When i try to use bluetooth device on windows, a message appears: "The specified device appears to be claimed by another driver (hci_usb) on the host operating system"

How can i disable bluetooth device on linux so as to can use it on windows vmware machine??

You'd need to stop the bluetooth service running. I couldn't tell you how to do that in Fedora Core, if you know yourslef then thats how you can do it.

Althought disabling bluetooth service vmware sais the same.

I have bluetooth services disabled, edited in system-config-services, and the problem persists.

Any other idea?
