I've been struggling trying to get my USB bluetooth dongle to work on

The same BT dongle worked fine under the old FC4 installation.
>From what I can see, in the installed i586 kernel (2.6.15-1.2025_FC5)
the drivers and net modules are all missing. To prove this I just
installed the i686 kernel on another machine and bluetooth worked fine
and the relevant directories with modules were present:
This seems to have been the case for all kernel builds I've tried in
the past few weeks.
Is this just an error in the config file used to compile the i586
kernel, or a concious decision to leave it out (in which case,
shouldn't the bluetooth service be removed too as it's throwing errors
on every boot?).
I'm hoping it's just an error, as I can't bear to think about having
to figure out how to manually compile every single new kernel from
source just to get bluetooth back on my mini-itx machine! :-(
over-aggressive slimming down of the 586 kernel.
I had fixing that on my TODO, but it got bubbled down by
other things in the last few days. I'll try and get to it tonight.
