    10 min later: Nothing in BIOS related to Bluetooth or WLAN. One Key at the keyboard allows dis/enable WLAN.

    YES, there is hope....! Knoppix-USB is Awesome! Fast, Flexible, Rock Solid! How I got Bluetooth working: 1) ---> Menu ---> Preferences ---> Desktop Session Settings - --> check mark on Bluetooth Manager ---> OK 2) ---> Menu ---> Preferences ---> S.P.M. (Synaptic P...) ---> Reload Packages and afterwards mark the packages 'bluetooth', 'bluez' and related blue* packages for upgrade! 3) After that was finished, the Bluetooth Icon appeared at the menu bar and Bluetooth was ready to go! Now, the neat part is, after restart all the new settings and upgrades are store at the USB stick and available again! Connected to the Laptop are Desktop PC, Printer, Cellphone, (wireless mouse and WiFi)! Thanks Knoppix Team ...way to go!
