Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm trying to setup synce to work with my pocket pc, following the guide on the official site:
I get to step 4 and type "synce-serial-config ttyUSB0" and get the response " You can now run synce-serial-start to start a serial connection." so far so good.
Then I get to step 5, as my own user, not root, I type "dccm", there is no response, good so far. Then as root, I type "synce-serial-start" and get the response " synce-serial-start is now waiting for your device to connect", I don't know if that is the response I want. But i continue to test the connection by typing, as a user "synce-pstatus" and I get the response "synce-pstatus: Unable to initialize RAPI: An unspecified failure has occurred"
Where did I go wrong? What can I do to fix this? Thanks.
Btw, my log file contained this:
Jul 18 07:41:49 localhost dccm: Listening for connections on port 5679
