Hot sync and Treo 650 (solved)

I was able to hot sync my Treo 650 on SuSE 9.2 with a 2.6.11 kernel. (I
haven't tried the stock kernel with the fix, below yet), so it might
work. Someone posted this on the SuSE list:

1. create file in /etc/udev/rules.d named 10-udev.rules and containing:
# Palm Handheld

2. create a file in /etc/udev/permissions named 10-udev.permissions
# Palm Handheld rw

The dlpsh command should work fine.

Note that with my Palm m130 I must use /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 and with the
Treo it is /dev/usb/ttyUSB1

The other problems I have not solved yet is how to merge my m130
databases onto the Treo. 
Initially, the Treo was identified as a different user because the m130
and the Treo had different user ids (same user name). The install-user
command can be used to set the user name and user id. One thing I was
too timid to try the other day was to backup my m130, then restore it to
the Treo.
