So what you're really asking is if the openmoko software can run on
your laptop, and use that card to make phone calls instead of GTA

I would assume no and I'm not sure why you'd want to do it that way.
If that card is supported under linux, I'm sure there is better
support for it with desktop applications.  But this list wouldn't be
the place to ask.

You should be able to have your laptop present itself has a bluetooth
headset to the Freerunner.   I have no idea if someone has written
software to do that though.
