That's not quite correct -- the Palm will always use the same USB
channel, but which channel you need to point to (ttyUSB0 or ttyUSB1)
depends on the OS of the device you're using.  For example, on my m505,
it was ttyUSB1, but on my T|T and T|T3,  it's ttyUSB0.

The easiest way to see if everything is working is to kill gnome-pilot
(do a "ps auwx | grep gpil" and kill whatever tasks return, then do the
following:

1. type "pilot-xfer -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -l" into a shell, but *don't* press
return
2. hit the HotSync button on your handheld
3. press return

If the contents of your handheld are listed, you've made a good
connection.

One thing to watch out for is that you've done a "chmod 0666 /dev/ttyUSB
[01]"... otherwise the permissions won't let you sync as a regular user.
