Syncing a Palm Zire 71 (usb connection) with Kpilot using Mandrake 9.2

I have an IBM thinkpad...running Mandrake 9.2 ( 2.4.22 ).
I have a Palm Zire 71 that i am connecting with a USB cradle to my laptop.
The Palm does start to do the sync cycle...but it never seems to finish...

This is the sync log that i got...

Version: KPilot 4.3.10 (BRANCH)
Version: pilot-link 0.11.8
Version: KDE 3.1.3
Version: Qt 3.1.2

13:30:08 Trying to open device...
13:30:08 Could not open device: /dev/pilot (will retry)

I am not sure what the exact setting should looks like the Palm is set up right. because i did a back up and the log showed all th files being read....but everytime i do anything..i keep getting the last line again....

cannot open...device...

Also...does anyone know how to setup a sync with a Blackberry.
