Wow, you have some really old versions of Mandriva there. Things have come a long way on the bluetooth front with the newer versions. Grab a copy from here: Go for the Mandriva Linux One 2008 version. It's a Live cd, just boot it up with your cd/dvd drive and away you go. You can use it without making any changes to the contents of your hard drive. If you decide you want to install it, there's an icon on the desktop to start the process.
