If you can, open a terminal.  On the eee Xandros, I think its ctrl+alt+t.  
connect your treo.  hit hotsync.  type dmesg in the terminal.  look for where 
the treo is being detected.  It may be detected as a visor or other palm 
device.  If it isn't being detected, try typing "sudo modprobe visor".   That 
command adds the module to the kernel so that the kernel can see your treo.  
Once you determine where dmesg is finding your treo, you have to configure 
kpilot to use that device.  Should be something like /dev/ttyUSB1.  If it is 
being seen on even and odd USB ports, use the odd numbered one.

I wrote this without having used the terminal in an eee (we just got one 
today), and with the assumption that you were familiar with all of this,  If 
you need more details, feel free to post again.
