Does anyone have any experience syncing a Pocket PC (like an iPaq) running the 2003 version of Windows with OS X (Panther)?

I've only done a Palm -- it was fairly straight forward to just get the Palm working -- more involved if you want to sync with iCal etc

1 - Go to your device makers web site and see if they have a mac desktop/sync down load and install ---- it would be more up to date than the one on your CDROM

2 - Then just hook up device and sync

It was that easy w the Palm

You have to purchase some software like The Missing Sync for Pocket PC to be able to sync your pocket pc with your mac.

There is another program you can use, just called PocketMac the advantage is that you can buy it in modules accordingto what do you want/need to use. I also have a PocketPC 2003 (Toshiba e755) but since i have my iBook i haven't been used it as much as i use to do, so i just keep it sync with my desktop pc. I haven't tried any of those programs, so please let me know how it works.
