I'm still having problem in getting palm pilot to sync.

If anyone is using jpilot with mandriva 2007 spring? If so, How do you
setup the serial port as an usb device?

Jpilot>File>Preferences>Settings>Serial Port

Whatever I do, I get the following error

Syncing on device /dev/bus/usb/002/
Press the HotSync button now
pi_bind error: /dev/bus/usb/002/ Is a directory
Check your serial port and settings
Exiting with status SYNC_ERROR_BIND
