I have slightly better news for you on this one :)

Network sync is mostly not working in current gnome-pilot releases,
but will work in the next release.

Right now you have a couple of options.  If you have a fedora-like
system, the easiest solution is probably to install the
patched gnome-pilot RPMs from:

Some people have reported success with the following workaround:
configure a 'USB' device with the gnome-pilot applet, and set the device
to 'net:'.  I don't think this can work unless you also happen to
have the USB cable attached (the usb cable 'wakes up' gnome-pilot, but
the sync will actually occur via the network).  This may not suit you.

Finally, there have been occasional reports of people managing to
netsync with shipped gnome-pilot.  If you configure a 'network'
device  with the applet, the 'device' field is ignored.

There's a HOWTO on the pilot-link site for the palm-side configuration,
and how to get things working on the pilot-link side.
