At a glance, I'd like to say "yes" it will work, to some degree anyway..then again maybe not.; as to what might be involved, I have no idea. Might just need a kernel module loaded, or could be more than that. Read carefully through the links above, there are some (rather sparse) tutorials there and lots of (maybe useful) info.. The device(s) are in the 'bluetooth HID (human interface device) category, which is supported fairly well with the 2.6 kernel version.
If you get anywhere, get stuck, or get nowhere, or need some more help along the way, please let us know! Best of luck
