how to transfer data from Palm desktop to Linux


I would like to transfer the data from Palm desktop on my windows vista laptop to my Linux netbook. The pda has stopped working so I cannot sync directly from pda to either computers.

Is this possible and if so what software do I need for the Linux and how do I do it, I would need step by step instructions as I am new to Linux and really only use it for web-browsing and skype.

Many thanks.

With my Palm Desktop, I can just choose File -> Export, and then export things to a comma separated file.

Most PIM software should be able to import a *.csv file.
