Bluetooth asks the PIN

Hello , I have the following problem : when I use Bluetooth for sending a file from a machine which has Ubuntu 9.04 Alternate installed to a Nokia mobile phone I am asked about the PIN in the , mobile phone.
I have seen that the request of the PIN is configured in the /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf file but that file does not exist in Ubuntu 9.04. The hcid daemond does not exist in Ubuntu 9.04.
I have tried to install earlier versions of Ubuntu but I could not because my computer is old.
How can the hcid demond and the /etc/bluetooth/hcid.cond file be executed and installed in Ubuntu 9.04 ALternate ?

I think that from 9.04 on, bluetooth is now supported by the bluez stack. This might help.
