I just got my Zaurus and it works fine on my WinXP box, but since I spend 90% of my time in Linux, I'd like to get it working there. I've got a fresh install of RedHat 9 and can't get the usb0 interface to come up to save my life. I'm certain the solution must be simple, but it evades me.

Please help!

There are actually two good options if you run the KDE pims on the desktop side - multisync (just released in the 0.81 version, I'm testing it) and kitchensync, which has some annoyances, but works too. Multisync can be found at multisync.sourceforge.net, and kitchensync - well, google for it. smile.gif
