Are  you using any front end such as kpilot, gpilit, or jpilot? They often
come  with a wizard that assumes a connection via USB (you can specify the
device  path,  e.g. /dev/usb/ttyUSB0). I never had any  difficulties  with
SuSE  and Ubuntu Palm synchronisation. Just a couple of minutes to set up,
given  that  all  the software is ready 'out of the box'.  For  what  it's
worth,  here  is the extensive HOWTO that has become a valuable  reference
for troubleshooting:


Hope it helps,
