Handspring Visor hotsync problem



I just installed Woody r1 (presumably, as I connected to sources on the
net while installing, and it downloaded a lot of stuff).  I included
pilot-link, gnome-pilot, evolution, and the things they each said they
depended on.  The kernel is 2.2.20.

I have been running Redhat 7.3, and have been reliably synch'ing my
Handspring Visor Prism for months.  I know this works - I've been doing
it.

It's not happening with Debian so far though.  I've appended some
information at the end of this message.

The visor modules reports as loaded, but the error message seems to say
it's not.  I'm not at all sure how to proceed from here.  I've read the
Visor mini-HowTo - that's how I got it working in Redhat.  Nothing in
that document seems relevant here - I followed all the steps again, and
that doesn't seem to be it.  This appears to be the relevant issue:

Dec 20 10:50:37 ganesha /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: missing kernel or user
mode driver visor 

lsmod says the visor modules is loaded.

Directly attempting the hotsync with pilot-link, a la the HowTo, gets a
message about pi_bind:
   Unable to bind to port /dev/ttyUSB1
   pi_bind: Permission denied


Any thoughts, please?
