You need the Bluetooth software to support the LAP (LAN Access over PPP) profile. I don't think the Mac OS X supports it. If this is the case then the Internet sharing connection will not work.

Have a look in our Bluetooth Guides. This will only be possible if the Bluetooth adapter comes with its own software (either Broadcom/Widcomm or BlueSoleil), since the native Bluetooth software on Windows XP SP2 doesn't support LAP either.
