Handsfree cell phone using PC via Bluetooth?

Hi, how do I place phone calls from my cell phone using my PC speaker/microphone via a bluetooth adapter in Linux? The Windows software that came with my phone had a program that let me do this in Windows. The Bluetooth adapter is a Kensington USB bluetooth adapter, which I can currently send/receive files between in Linux. I am using Fedora 7 Linux. I've been searching Google, but have not found much for programs that support handsfree communication.

Found a few things in Google. I did not fully read through the first but there seems to be an attempt in the bluez tools.
