Will a usb bluetooth adapter work on this machine? Like the linksys usbbt100?

It doesn't need to be this model I am just wondering if this ideal will work

I think so. You can either have it pre installed internally or use this type in the USB port. I'd vote for the internal version, although I'd be curious to see the ranges on both.

I have the D-Link BT USB adapter that I bought for my old 17inch Widescreen iMac (Luxo-type). I am now using it on a 1.25 G4 eMac. Panther makes it easy to set up. If you haven't ordered yet, I'd vote for internal, too.

Thanks, I noticed that they dropped the BTO price to 50$. I might get one of these from CompUsa though as a friend works there so I may not be able to get internal.

Yes, I purchsed two of these to extend the range of my Treo650 to control iTunes. Works great up to about 75 feet inside my house with the 650. Had to resync some devices.

And by the way, got them from Dell for $39 each.
