I always use network sync.

Which part isn't working for you ? In summary, I have a pppd listen
for the palm (hacked pppd to work better over USB) and I have jpilot
listen on "net:". I hit the hotsync hard button on my cradle, which
runs a stub app I wrote which does a network-sync instead of a
standard sync (otherwise, the hard button only ever does standard
sync, and you have to go to the hotsync app and click "modem sync"

Both my stub, and the tiny pppd hack will be on the web soon, but I
can send you things if you want them.

I'm not familiar with that HOWTO document, but if you tell me specific
things that are failing I can probably help.
