Bear,

Try this:

su - to root.

root # tail -f /var/log/messages

then plug in your usb connection to the GPS, and let us know what it says.

USB is handled by hotplug, so if configures the entries on-the-fly.

First, we need to know if it IS seeing the device when you plug it in, and 
recognising it.
