USB and Palm

I have a pismo and a Palm V, and naturally, I'd like them to talk
through Linux rather than MacOS.

I tried plugging the cradle in to an USB port (I have an adapter that
works fine through MacOS 9). I can see this in dmesg:

	USB new device connect, assigned device number 1

but there is no matching /dev/usb*, which is what I was expecting.

There's definitely SOME sort of successful USB support, because I'm
using a USB mouse (which shows up as /dev/usbmouse).

I'm using Paul's 2.2.15pre19 kernel at the moment.

I've read in various places that one can use pilot-link etc with USB,
just linking /dev/pilot to the appropriate USB device - problem is that
there IS no appropriate USB device.

Is there something else that I need to do?
