setup will not sync palmIIIxe using gnome pilot via serial cable

I have a palm pilot that was initially synced with a windows os. I am migrating over to Linux. I am trying to copy all my data and programs in the palmIIIxe using gnome pilot. I tried all the serial port names and speeds and have read the online help. I tried this command as root "chmod a+wrx /dev/pilot'. It said the folder did not exist. Do I need to create the folder in order the get gnome pilot to work? I am using Red Hat Linux 9.0 and the Palm serial cradle.
