Linux and wireless BlueTooth USB dongle; connect to network


Hello,

What shall I do to connect that bluetooth so I can still be connected to Internet?

Atm I'm connected via DHCP through WIN XP computer in my Mandriva 2006 computer with RJ45.
I want to change it to use the USB Bluetooth wireless.

It's connected to here and the other comp with winXP.

The drivers which I got with the disk are ment for XP only, solution? maybe other drivers? Kernel Patch / Auto detect?


Thanks!

I googled it up before posting! but I couldn't understand what I'm looking from these site, that's why I posted.


It usually goes like this, like you probably know :

Question? --> Google --> found=yes -> done; found=no -> Write question here.
