    When you do ls -l /dev/pilot, you should get a long line of info, which ends with /dev/pilot -> /dev/ttyUSB0 (or something similar). The fourth and fifth elements of the line (after a letter or dash, a series of nine [rwx] letters and/or dashes, and a short number) are the user and the group that own the file. So the second "word" is the group.

    when I type the command to see the /dev/pilot location I get the following information

    Code:
     linux:/home/chacmool # ls -l /dev/pilot
    total 178
    drw-------   2 chacmool root     48 2007-02-18 18:06 .
    drwxr-xr-x  36 root     root 181872 2007-02-19 20:07 ..
    linux:/home/chacmool #

    I was wondering if maybe I am missing something??

    well just let me know what you think. I appreciate your help.

    That's what you get when the Palm Pilot is plugged in and the hot-sync button was just pressed?
    Is udev installed?

    I believe udev is installed,

    I went to YAST (the application manager in SUSE) and saw that udev is infact installed it is version: 053-15.4.
