pairing my motorola phone with the bluez-utils tool
I am having trouble pairing my phone with the bluez-util on linux to my phone. I don't even know how to start off, I know I'm suppose to be at the root@3[~] prompt but my linux box I am always at root@bt# I am wondering how do I get it to be at root@3[~}.
at the root@3[~}# I type "hcitool scan hci0" but it says device not found error message.
the next step is to do at root@3[~]# bluesnarfer -r 1-100 -b then the ip address of my phone but I'm getting an error there like device not found. how do I start off by pairing my phone with linux.

Yes but first am I at the right root in linux, root@bt# or should it be root@3[~] I do have the updated version and further the first thing I run is the hcitool cammand which gives an error device not found. On the manual it said I should be at the root@3[~] root, and how do I start off by getting there from the root@bt#.
under bluetooth linux menu i selected blue-maho for a change but it is not taking the values I'm putting in for bd_addr.
Can you walk me through the steps from the backtrack menu to bluetooth then select what on the next menu. then we can proceed from there, all my software is up to date it is backtrack 4 ubuntu i686. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org we can chat some more about this
