What you need to do is make a copy of the "Claris Organizer 2.0" file in the
Intellisync folder in NCU's folder. This file is a blank CO2.0 file, rename
it to anything you want (e.g. "Dave's Datebook", etc...). Using NCU, hit the
synchronize button (making sure you have selected the soups you want to
synchronize (i.e. Dates, Names, ToDos, etc.) in the prefs) and select the
file you just copied and renamed. This will synch your info on your Newt to
the CO2.0 file.

Then, all you need to do is quit NCU and open Palm Desktop. If it opens a
blank, new organizer for you just close it and select File -> Open... and
browse to the file you just sync'd to. Palm Desktop (being simply a later
version of CO2.0) will open the file without changing its file type/creator

The only thing you have to remember when doing future syncs is to close the
file in Palm Instant Desktop (the little menu that gets installed next to
your clock), or NCU won't be able to access the file.
