What error messages are you getting? It works pretty well for me on my
PowerBook G3 Series/250 with Palm Desktop 2.1 (I haven't tried 2.5 yet)
and MacOS 8.6. Tried freezing or removing At A Glance (what's At A
Glance? Where do you get it? Does it add data to Dates that wasn't
already there?)

You can't sync the file that's currently used by default by Palm Desktop
because the little INIT that adds the icon in your menu bar on the right
side listing your schedule for today has that file open.

No, you can't. NCU doesn't support IrDA fully.
