I'd like to connect to internet on my laptop by using my cell phone as modem. This cellphone has Bluetooth and I own usb bluetooth dongle. Are any livecds (livedvds or whatever) that are already preconfigured that I could use for this?

Why do you insist on using a LiveCD? Also, why won't you state what distro you currently use or who your cell phone carrier is? – CarlF Apr 1 '11 at 18:01
Because I thought that maybe it'll be easier and preconfigured. My phone is Sagem my421Z. – lorem Apr 1 '11 at 18:08
@CarlF - I believe lorem wants a Live{CD|DVD} because its preconfigured and likely works out of the box. He might also want to preserve his existing OS (and not install the distro). His choice of media is not really relevant, though. – jww Aug 9 '14 at 16:55

If you are using ubuntu 10.10 you dont need any thing ,
For Ubuntu 10.04 or other linux distros you need to install blueman

sudo apt-get install blueman
in you terminal

if however you only wish to use it on a live cd get ubuntu 10.10 live cd

I don't use ubuntu. Does this work on some sort of ubuntu based livecd? Any idea? Or install just won't go through if it's not on hd? – lorem Apr 1 '11 at 17:37
Ubuntu installation cd also acts as a live cd , it allows you to try it out before you install it , download 10.10 and make a bootable cd/usb – Shekhar Apr 1 '11 at 17:47
