    Not that I'm aware of, but the Eee PC is a realy new device. It's possible someone will come up with a solution for you at some point. Right now though I think you're out of luck.

    The issue is with USB drivers under the Linux OS?

    You can sync the m515 with standard serial connection, Palm made serial cable/cradle (DB-9 connector).

    If possible to then this could be an option. If USB is only connection the USB-Serial adapter can be used to handle the conversion to local serial.

    Another option if available would be a IR dongle. The m515 can hotsync via this comm factor as well.

    The issue is for something like Palm Desktop, Pocket Mirror and BackupBuddy to run on the Linux machine (Asus EEE).
