If you're using GNOME, then there's a panel applet called pilot-link that
runs a daemon to monitor your serial or USB cradle, and sync your palm.
Optionally it can run conduits to sync your mail, addressbook, etc.
There are many other options, I believe there is kpilot for KDE, and several
daemon only and manual command line utilities as well.
Freshmeat has just opened a PalmOS section, as well, which is cool.
ObDebian: apt-get install gnome-pim-conduits pilot-link
