Hot sync and Treo 650 (solved)

Just a final note on this thread. 
I was able to transfer the important data from by Palm m130 to the Treo650 
using jpilot. The steps were:
1. export Calendar, Memo, and Address book (and other data). Export as CSV 
not as text. 
2. Sync the Treo. This will delete the current databases under jpilot. 
3. For each database, import and sync. (I found that importing more than one 
at a time is problematical). I also lost my categories for the address 

Overall, the process went ok. Along the way I trashed my M130 and my 
databases, and had to recover from a backup. I also tried to do this under 
Windows XP, but the only thing I accomplished was to render the Pam Desktop 
useless to where it won't run at all :-).

Once I restored from my screwups, I followed the above procedure and my Treo 
is not up to date. A bit of a pain, but it is worth it.
