I did it via file export/import using jpilot on linux: exported my 
contacts as vcards, my notes as text (or csv), and my calendar as 
iCalendar.  It wasn't perfect, but it was probably 98%.  I then imported 
the contacts and calendar into gpe-contacts and gpe-calendar.  Notes are 
text files, so that isn't a big deal except I had one or two notes that 
were more than 4K in size which caused jpilot to truncate them.  I used 
the Pilot Windows program to get the full notes for those.

Yes, the n800 shows up as one or two drives, depending on how many SD 
cards you have plugged in.
