gnome-pilot doesn't really give much away in terms of errors, but here's my
guess: You don't have permissions to read or write the serial ports.

For instance, on Debian, you must be added to the dialout group to use the
serial ports for anything -> check this out on your distro.

Hope that helps - it rocks when you get your Palm syncing up nicely. :)
