	Or just do a Network Hotsync, which has worked for 3+ years now with
the underlying code that gnome-pilot relies on, pilot-link. I wrote a HOWTO
on this awhile back.

	Overkill. Just run pi-nredir locally, which is much lighter than
gnome-pilot and all of the required libraries it brings in with it.

	You don't need gnome, X, or even a monitor to perform a sync over
the network with your Palm device. You just need a serial, usb, or IR port.
