I was having similar issues with my Tungsten E until I upgraded the 
kernel to 2.6.10-1.741_FC3  It was a problem with udev fixed a couple of 
nightly builds before this one.  My "serial port" is set blank in 
Preferences.  Also, one needs to initiate the sync from the palm (to get 
udev to create the proper usb nodes) before asking jpilot to sync.
