See my response to Werner/Jerry.  Unfortunately for PalmOS fans, it has been 
relegated to the trash heap, like Mac OS 9 or earlier, Amiga and BeOS.  There 
is a FOSS history of niche apps to support obsolete systems, like this, but I 
wouldn't depend on it.  

You could try running an older version of KDE in a virtual machine and syncing 
with that.  VirtualBox seems to have good USB support.
