I think that you'll find some bugzilla reports on this. 

ttyUSB0 should be root and not your user id but that shouldn't matter.
The # prompt that you related tell me that you are trying this as root
and not as user...

The following is what I did on FC-3 but you'll get the idea.

FC-3 - apparently udev is the issue so I am providing a manual
workaround in the interim.

as root...

mknod /tmp/pilot c 188 1
chown craig /tmp/pilot

plug in treo and press hotsync button

as craig (cli)

pilot-xfer -L -p /tmp/pilot

Works - got file list from Treo

so to make gpilotd work I had to add...

 <!-- Handspring Treo 650 -->
 <device vendor_id="0830" product_id="0061" />

to /usr/share/gnome-pilot/devices.xml

bugzilla entry that led me here...
