Have you tried just plugging it in? Almost all USB Bluetooth adapters are supported out of the box in Linux, in fact, I have never used one that wasn't.

Plug the adapter in, make sure BlueZ is running, and run "hciconfig" to see if it is working.

Are you really using RHL9 (Shrike) https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikiped...Red_Hat_Linux? As you can see it was obsolete many years ago and may not support modern bluetooth HW.
Get a modern distro like Fedora 14 or Ubuntu & try that.

Spell out your words, please.

As chrism01 pointed out, RedHat 9 is very, VERY old. Use something current, like Fedora 14, and it will probably 'just work' when you install it.
