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.

Approximately a week and a half ago I set up my Sony Clie T615c to sync from a USB port to RedHat 9 using J-Pilot 0.99.6. It worked fine. Approximately one week later, I used the GUI Camera Tool to add some pictures to my computer. My Camera plugs into a different USB port than my Clie cradle (which I leave plugged in all the time). A day or so after downloading my pictures out of the camera I tried to hotsync my Clie using J-Pilot. The only difference between this hotsync and my previous one was that I was trying to install some new files onto the Clie as opposed to just syncing my PIM.
This is the message I get from J-Pilot:
pi_bind Invalid argument
Check your serial port and settings
Exiting with status SYNC_ERROR_BIND
I get the same message all the time now. Whether I am trying to install files or just trying to sync my PIM.
When I try pilot-xfer I get the following message:
[root@localhost dad]# pilot-xfer -b /home/dad/Downloads/Palm
No $PILOTPORT specified and no -p <port> given.
Defaulting to '/dev/pilot'
ERROR: No such device
Unable to bind to port '/dev/pilot'
