1) Make sure you have the pilot-link package installed and up to date.
2) Make sure it works: do 'pilot-dlpsh -p usb:' and play around. Check
the man pages for the various pilot-* commands.
3) If you want a GUI front-end pick one (e.g. kpilot, gnome-pilot) and
4) Configure the front-end to use 'usb:' as the Pilot device.
