Remind me - it doesnt see the *cradle* until you press the button,

if thats the case, you can use devfs and hotplug.

if it sees the cradle always, devfs is an irrelevance because it perfoms
identically to a static node in that case...

either way the palm itself is a serial device and has nothing to do with
devfs ;)
