Unhappy Zaurus Sl-5600

I just bought a Zaurus SL-5600, I try to connected to my computer running Red Hat but it will not recognize it. Why? I connected it to the usb port and reboot the system and press the sync button, nothing...

Thanks, Grace

Depending on your kernel, you may or may not be able to get the Z to communicate with standard TCP/IP over the USB connection (basically you put the Z in the cradle and it acts like it's a normal network connection). The only software that the Z can actually do its 'syncing' with as far as I know is called Qtopia Desktop and that is rudimentery to say the least. Anyway, here are a couple of links on getting the Z to do standard TCP/IP through the cradle:

From there you can manually back files up or use rsync or something equivalent.
