Hey folks,

Has anyone had luck getting Palm M500 or related working on a Mandrake
8.2 distro (I use GDM if that makes any difference)?

I understand that the device needs a specific userid, and there is one
there that isn't mine.  I've tried hard resetting the device and then
trying again but I can't seem to get past a permissions error for the

If anyone has been able to make this work, please give me a holler.. if
I can get this thing to sync I can actually enjoy using with the Palm! 
Not being able to sync makes me feel like I'm just pretending.

I'll be happy to answer questions about my setup if needed!

Thanks a bunch,
