There is probably some software out there, but I couldn't find it.

Here are some links to explore however....

There is gnome pilot this is started by gpilotd-control-applet from gui this in in fact the setup interface the deamon is then started.

I have not tested it as I dont have an ipaq

this can be dowloaded from the following site

you can find more info on this topic by doing a serch in google under "gnome pilot linux"

Hope It is what you need.

Re: Compaq iPaq

for kde environments (but also for Gnome, if you have kde installed anyway)you can use:

1) kitchensync

2) qtopiadesktop
available also for windows desktop
