This worked, and I am finally able to sync my Palm via a virtual
machine. Now I need to figure out how to do this for KVM. This appears
to be more difficult than either VirtualBox or Xen, as the virt-manager
doesn't create the necessary bridged devices automatically for this to
work, so I am going to have to figure out how to do it manually. I have
Googled for this but the instructions I found didn't work. As soon as I
add the "eth0" to one of my bridge devices, regular networking for the
host OS stops working. Obviously I am just missing something. I am going
to have to find a tuturial somewhere on how bridging actually works in
order to figure this out.
