Help with Bluetooth please

I have just purchased a HP IPAQ 2210 pda, and an MSI bluetooth dongle.
When I try to make a connection between the pda and my pc (running XP), I get the message (on the pc) that an attempt to connect is being made, and that I should click the window to proceed.
This then brings up a larger window on the pc, which is asking for a PIN number (part of the "pairing" security procedure?).
When any number is entered, and return is pressed, the pda "chirps" and the pda screen then asks for a "pass number".
The procedure times out after about 10 secs.
How do I find the 2 numbers required?
The pda connects ok using the cradle, and the only problem is with Bluetooth.

normally the pin numbers are 0000(zero zero zero zero)

Thanks. This works. Why can't the instruction brochures carry this info?
