Identify USB port

I'm running SuSE 7.3 with a 2.4.16 kernel. 
My /dev/pilot is still linked to ttyS0, but I specified ttyUSB1 (I think) 
in the setup for jpilot - both from the SuSE distribution or updated from 
SuSE patches. 
I had to specifically tell it that the baudrate was 9600.

I first press the button on the cradle, then the sync button on jpilot. 
Since I also had a serial cradle for David's Palm Pilot, I left the symlink 
for /dev/.pilot alone.
