I'm a linux newbie trying to get my bluetooth phone to communicate with 
my bluetooth laptop.

I noted your reply to Patrick Steiner's bluetooth trouble (I tried to 
contact him, but his address is not valid):


It looks like you've not got RFCOMM and/or RFCOMM TTY support in your 
kernel.  Try compiling it in/inserting the modules.

What does the "compiling it in/inserting the modules" mean in practical
