If you're just trying to get remote access to your calendar using a web 
browser, you could use any palm-syncable software and tightvnc.  You 
can find tightvnc in the ports.  Tightvnc has a small web server that 
allows access to your desktop from a remote internet browser.  

Unfortunately, this does not facilitate remote syncing of your palm 

To view tightvnc from a web browser, point your url to your desktop 
machine using port 5800 +  the display number.

I sync my palm pilot using the jpilot port.  I invoke tightvnc on 
display 1 on my desktop at hostname.com using:
	vncserver :1

To run my desktop from a remote browser, I would point my browser to:
Then I run jpilot on my desktop.

I hope this helps.
