Sounds similar to the zaurus problems with usbdnet.
If the Palm uses usbdnet, then you'll want to find a kernel patch or
upgrade to 2.4.21 or later which has nice usbnet support.  That supposes
the palm can be made to work over usbnet.  Note that usbdnet and usbnet
*are* two different things and not merely fat fingers :)

Dunno.  You'd have to provide a lot more info to get help on the second
one.  If you provided it in an earlier thread, I've forgotten it.
