That is certainly one possibility.  I had my laptop set up as a PPP
server over rfcomm, and had my Palm do dial-up to it.

Another possibility would be Bluetooth PAN (Personal Area Network).
I've no personal experience with this, but I've seen it mentioned on
this list, and I've also seen some Maemo Extras packages with names
hinting at this purpose.

Ad-hoc WiFi would be simpler, if your laptop supports it.  Many Linux
wireless drivers don't support ad-hoc or master modes. :(
