I've been using a Kensington bluetooth mouse [1] for a while that's
pretty awesome.  I'm running unstable on a Thinkpad x31 with internal
bluetooth.  I don't know if the Fujitsu has internal, but getting it
to work with a usb bluetooth adaptor should be no problem.  IIRC, all
I had to do was install the bluetooth package and compile the kernel
with bluetooth support.  

Only bummer is that I have to turn off bluetooth before I suspend, and
when I wake up I have to turn bluetooth back on and do "sudo hidd
--search" to use the mouse again.  If I forget to turn it off I have
to reboot to get bluetooth working again.
