KPilot to Handspring via USB

I've loaded KPilot and tried to get it to hotsync with my Handspring Visor via 
the USB cradle without success. 

I did a bit of Googling but all of the advice left me with too many unknowns 
and combinations of parameters to solve the problem. E.g., KPilot needs to 
have /dev/pilot symlinked to the USB. I shot in the dark with "ln -s 
/dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/pilot" and then "chmod 666 /dev/ttyUSB0" because of bits on 
info I picked up from my searches. But I don't really know that that is what 
is needed. And the setup for KPilot gives three choices for the USB: USB-old, 
USB-devfs, and USB-m505. I found no clue on which of these I should use. 
Further I don't really know if I'm even shooting in the right direction.

My system is a Compaq Presario 4880; and my distro is SuSE 8.0 with KPilot 

Help will be much appreciated.
