Sync in what ever order you like. Its the "Last Sync PC" setting on the
Palm that matters. Each desktop (Palm Desktop, J-Pilot) has a PC ID. It
sets this on the Palm at the end of a sync. When either desktop sees that
the Palm it is syncing with was synced on a different desktop it should
perform a slow sync.
