Dell Bluetooth Travel Mouse

We recently ordered 4 new Latitude D830s for a client with the Bluetooth mice and upon received had an interesting experience. Granted my experience with Bluetooth is limited (okay non-existent except for my phone headset) it was still interesting. The paperwork that came with the mouse shows that when setting up Bluetooth you just select the "Don't use a passkey" item. Well the problem is either those were written for Vista (and we're using XP Pro) or the aren't using the Bluetooth utility that comes with the new Dell. After a few minutes of seaching it appears the mouse does indeed have a PIN.

Putting 0000 in the PIN window connected the mouse successfully and we had the pretty Dell BT Travel Mouse in the Bluetooth Settings utility.

Thank the Lord above for simple solutions.
