Well, if you say so, I believe you.
The reason I think I don't have the correct permissions settings is 
because on the following web page, it says that the error I get is 
because the permissions are wrong. If I already have the "correct" 
permissions settings, and I still get this error, then I'm at a loss to 
diagnose the problem.

In the JPilot preferences page, it has a field for entering in "Serial 
Port". In that field I have "/dev/pilot".
There does not seem to be an option or way to specify whether or not the 
connection is USB, but I assume if it's going to /dev/pilot then it 
should be looking in the right place...?
