Whoa, you're going to downgrade your entire distribution just because
you're having trouble syncing your Palm!!??  Please tell me you haven't
started yet...

I too could never get visor and /dev/ttyUSB* to work with my 700p, so I
switched to libusb, which is faster.

Try this, it works for me with a 700p on Debian etch:
      * find /lib/modules -name visor.ko -print
      * mv <that file> /root/ [if there's more than one, give them
        different names]
      * rmmod visor
      * <Remove pilot-applet from panel, if it's running>
      * apt-get update && apt-get install libusb libusb-dev
      * cp /usr/share/pilot-link/udev/60-libpisock.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
      * /etc/init.d/udev restart
      * <Plug in Treo>
      * <Hit hotsync>
      * pilot-link -p usb: -l
Does that last command give you a list of the files on the Treo?

You should also be able to do the last command as non-root; does that
work too?

If so, you can restart the pilot-applet, left-click, and under Devices,
Edit your Cradle setting so its Device is usb: instead of /dev/pilot

Note that it may still take a couple of tries to get it to work, but it
