A USB/Bluetooth dongle is the easiest way.  I used to get them out of Hong Kong, 10 for $15US,  a couple years ago till newer laptops started getting them as base equipment.  I have a USB/Bluetooth adapter in my desktop just for phone use.


You can search through network adapters to see if you already have Bluetooth, but if it isn't a laptop, and it came with XP originally, then it likely won't have Bluetooth.
