[CentOS] Changing permissions on files that only exist during

Thank you for that link. However, it is full of advice that is hard to
follow. Things like "Change /etc/udev/rules.d/10-visor.rules so that
udev does not touch the Palm ttyUSB device nodes", which is something I
don't know how to do.
Anyway, I did my best to try and follow some of the instructions. It
said to press the hotsync button on the palm, and then "cp -a" the files
that appear, and then change the permissions on the resulting files. So
I tried that and got this result:
[root at localhost dev]# ls -l /dev/ttyUSB* /dev/pilot
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Sep 3 22:25 /dev/pilot -> ttyUSB1
crw-rw---- 1 root uucp 188, 0 Sep 3 22:25 /dev/ttyUSB0
crw------- 1 dave uucp 188, 1 Sep 3 22:25 /dev/ttyUSB1
[root at localhost dev]# cp -a /dev/pilot pilot
... but wait. If I name the file the same thing, then it says file
already exists. If I name it something else, it has nothing to do with
the files that Jpilot is looking for.
Can someone break this down into something a little simpler? I'm a
newbie here, and the wealth of information on that page isn't exactly
designed to be easily accessible.
