iPAQ Pocket PC sync to XP with ActiveSync

I decided to sync my iPAQ Pocket PC to my XP desktop. Something I haven't done in ages. So, I went here and reinstalled ActiveSync 4.1.

I kept getting this message "connection disabled" when I ran ActiveSync on XP. This site set me straight.

In the PC, open ActiveSync, then click File/Connection Settings. Make sure that your method of connection is checked.

I went to File/Connection Settings and checked "Allow USB". Immediately, my PC beeped and launched some New Partnership wizard, which seems kind of ghey. I selected "standard partnership", "sync with desktop", device name "Pocket_PC_2006", then I selected to sycn calendar, contacts, tasks and hit finsih. It started whirring and said "Synchronizing". Now, it says they're all done!
