Mea culpa. I forgot to 'splain myself: I am not running a palm off of a 
USB port. I am running a palm that syncs off of a serial port. In this 
case it's /dev/ttyS0 and the problem is that every time I reboot the 
computer, the link /dev/pilot which points to /dev/ttyS0 goes away. Also, 
the permissions get reset. So in the meantime I added this to my rc.local:

ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /dev/pilot
chmod 666 /dev/ttyS0

Is there a better way or is this as good as it gets?
