Please spell out your words.

The first thing I can suggest is for you to NOT use Red Hat Enterprise 5.3. Since you have a new installation, start with something that is designed for a 'consumer' PC, like Ubuntu or Mint. RHEL is made for SERVERS...that is, things that DO NOT have bluetooth/sound/wifi (and often not even MONITORS or keyboards). Devices like those either aren't supported, or will take a good bit of effort to get working. If you absolutely NEED RHEL, at least load the latest version...RHEL5.3 is old.

If you load Mint or Ubuntu, setup becomes much easier, since you'll have bluetooth tray icons, and dial-up networking options already present. Otherwise, you'll first have to get your bluetooth device set up, using tools like hcitool, and edit config files to get the pairing completed. Once you do that, you'll have to run commands to open a serial terminal line, then use wvdialconf to set up your modem.

I guess you should use RHEL 6.3 as new RHCE is based on RHEL6.

Again, you need to SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS. RHEL is NOT a free distro, and you WILL NOT get bugfixes/updates/patches, or be able to install software via online repositories. CentOS is 99.x% IDENTICAL to RHEL, so load it instead. Using old software to 'learn' with is pointless.

And I did tell you how to do it above, did you not read what I posted?? Use hcitool to scan for your bluetooth device. Then, pair it by editing the rfcomm.conf file, adding an entry for your device, based on what you got with hcitool. Use wvdialconf to configure your modem. There are even threads on this very site that you can find with a search, that tell you how to pair/discover bluetooth devices. Have you tried to look this up?
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ensuse-820084/

AGAIN, I will tell you that RHEL/CentOS is FOR SERVERS...your bluetooth device may not work AT ALL, and alot of your other peripherals may not work either. If you want to start learning Linux on a Red Hat based distro, load Fedora, and chances are your devices will work. It will give you a better footing to move into CentOS later.

No, that is NOT RIGHT, and no one said that. Again:
  • Use Mint, Fedora, or Ubuntu, unless you have a real NEED to use RHEL or CentOS.
  • RHEL is for SERVERS; support for bluetooth/wifi/sound, and other things that aren't typically on servers may be missing or difficult to configure.
  • RHEL 5.3 is OLD; do not use it.
  • Unless you are PAYING FOR RHEL, do not use it, and use the latest version of CentOS instead.
  • See my previous post about how to scan for bluetooth devices, and how to set them up.
If you aren't going to read/follow the advice given to you, there is little point in posting a question. I posted commands, a link on how to set things up, and advice on what you're doing, but it doesn't appear that you even read it.
