Sony clie UX-50 and Linux

Does the sony clie UX50 (palm OS 5) reconcile with Linux ? With what application ?

I currently have an SL5500 but it plays so little with Linux that I am getting bored with it.....

Thanks for any hint

Dukeinlondon , did you ever try a ux50 ?
I got one a couple of days ago and it is an incredible piece
of work. So far I have only hotsynched it and used it as e/ under
xp of course. Next week I am finally going to get dsl and a wireless
router. Once that is sorted out I plan to put my linux hd back in my
laptop and let the fun begin!

An update for any LQers with a ux50. At the moment I have Knoppix 3.7 on the h/d. The ux50 syncs wirelessly using jpilot. If I plug in the usb cable and hit data import knoppix automounts the memory stick I have in the pda and puts an icon(sda1) on the desktop. If I then click this icon and the one for my fat32 partition both open up in konquerer and I can drag-and-drop files between them. Very nice.
