I have the pdf converter running with wine and Palm Desktop. The palm Desktop 
installer requires some playing with MSI, I don't remember exactly what I 
did. Note that you can't run the Palm Desktop application, but you can run 
hotsync.exe which is enought to get PDF files onto the palm.

No, it doesn't work with USB. You can use ircomm by setting com1 
-> /dev/ircomm0, but that's slow and buggy. It's much better to configure 
hotsync.exe and your palm to use network sync with and use 
pi-nredir from the pilot-link package to make hotsync.exe talk to the Palm.

For all Palm users here: This also works with DocumentsToGo, but DocumentsToGo 
is unstable if an memory card is inserterd.

I thought about writing an pilot-link conduit which reads the wine registry 
and uses wine to call the dll conduits. So far it only creates some registry 
entries and tests at school forced me to interrupt this work.
