[BTM] Tungsten won't sync with Desktop

One thing Ben Levy and I found is that we had to actually reinstall the Palm
Desktop 4.0 software that came with the Tungsten T.  I still can't find what
the differences are but there's something on the CD that comes with the
Tungsten T that's different than the previous general release of Palm
Desktop 4.0.

Hope that helps.
