Problem with grub and new hardware
I have a dual boot (XP pro/Fedora 6). I just added a internal bluetooth card and device is turned off once grub starts up. The new hardware is not recognized by either OS. I suspect some setting in grub config files has to change. Not sure what to look for. Any help would be appreciated.

Grub doesn't configure devices.

If neither OS recognizes the device, then the problem probably lies with the device.

Point your browser at the search words 'internal bluetooth configure'. You will find sone interesting reading.

The device is powered as the bios is loaded. (bluetooth led is on) Once the grud splash screen is up the light is tuned off.

The grub menu comes up and offers you a choice of systems to boot. When your selection is made, grub either hands the boot process over to another bootloader (as in windows), or calls the kernel image in the /boot directory (as in Linux).

The power is on at first, then shuts off. That implies something in your system setup: either in the kernel configuration, or in one of the boot scripts or module loading.

I gave you a suggestion for a google search to a possible solution. You may need to install some bluetooth specific software utilities.

Here is the link to one article that I thought particularly applicable to your situation:
