You're using a USB cradle?

I've used the Palm IIIe (serial cradle) and Handspring Visor Pro
successfully.  The Handspring Visor HOWTO at the Linux Documentation
Project (or your own /usr/share/doc/HOWTO/ directory) walks you through
the process.

Try the directions there, if you can't get joy, post back with steps
tried, and problems encountered.
