I think it might be time to modify the README for this info, I'll look
into doing that later today...

But in the meantime:

The USB Bluetooth driver is in the kernel source tree, not the Axis
stack tree.  I recommend either using versions 2.2.18 or the latest
2.4.x (which is 2.4.2 as of this writing).  Get USB support working for
Linux by reading the FAQ and Linux USB Guide at:
Create the USB Bluetooth device nodes in /dev for ttyUB? if they are not
created by reading the documentation for the driver at
Documentation/usb/bluetooth.txt in the kernel source tree.

Then point the Axis stack at /dev/ttyUB0 instead of the serial port,
after you have inserted the bluetooth device, and it's recognized by the
USB Bluetooth driver (you should see something to that effect in the
kernel log.)

Hope this helps,
