"cat /proc/bus/usb/devices" gets me the following.

T: Bus=01 Lev=02 Prnt=04 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#= 10 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.01 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS=16 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=4505 ProdID=0010 Rev= 0.00
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr= 2mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=ipaq
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms

so... how do I connect the thing to pdaXrom via usb?

(as you might guess, my experiments with IR didn't quite pan out... and if I can get connected on usb, I'd rather as it doesn't require a table.)
