Try using Evolution, and going to Edit>Synchronization options... it should be pretty simple. Actually, it's easier to set up network devices like my Palm TX, but it allows you to use USB. Here are my instructions. My Zire 72 isn't charged up, so I can't test them, but they should work:
<LI TYPE=1 VALUE=1>Open Evolution and go to Edit>Synchronization Options
<LI TYPE=1 VALUE=2>Go to the Devices tab and click Add
<LI TYPE=1 VALUE=3>Give it a name, and check off USB. Make sure to change /dev/pilot to usb: using the dropdown list. Leave everything else as default, and click OK.
<LI TYPE=1 VALUE=4>Now go to the PDAs tab and click Add. Change the Name and the Local Folder if you wish (put a . before the folder name to make it hidden), but don't touch the Owner and the PDA ID unless you want to overwrite the data that's already on the PDA. Then plug in the PDA and hit Get from PDA.
<LI TYPE=1 VALUE=5>Once that's set up, you can go to the Conduits tab and configure what you want synchronized to where.
