I am about to get a bluetooth phone. How do I know if my 15 inch powerbook has bluetooth already installed?
I have a 15 inch 800mhz.

Easy: No 15" powerbook released by Apple has internal bluetooth. If you are unsure open System Preferences. If there is a Bluetooth icon there you have built in bluetooth (or a bluetooth adaptor in a USB slot).

I does not have Bluetooth. However, USB bluetooth is easily installable. Just buy a d-link adapter for the USB and wala, insta BT

The Apple store always has BT in stock from what I've seen, so it is pretty easy to add it for about $20-30.
