If I understand you correctly you only have a copy of your data in your
old Treo. Just to be sure you don't lose it do a "mkdir treo-backup",
then "pilot-xfer -p usb: -b treo-backup". Get a backup before you go on.
Then "mv .jpilot .jpilot-old" and start jpilot and sync the palm with
data in it.
To sync your other treo just create a script named jp2.sh (or some name)
At the command line:
chmod +x jp2.sh
Then when you run jp2.sh you'll have a separate jpilot that you can sync
with the other Treo.
You can't sync two PalmOS devices, or sync them to the same set of data.
There isn't enough meta-data to make it work correctly.
If you want data on the other Palm then use jpilot or pilot-xfer to
"install" the ContactsDB-PAdd database and the ContactsDB-PAdd database,
etc. Each application has a prc, which is the program and a pdb file,
which is the database. Only install your additional programs and data
