I had a friend who ran into that pesky OS X issue he have seen here - Palm Desktop never asks for the admin password when installing - and he said he found a fix for it.

It looks like the problem may be not in the Mac Palm Desktop installer but in Stuffit 8.0. They've released a patch for Stuffit 8.0 that fixes an issue with UNIX permissions.

He downloaded the patch and then reran the Palm Desktop installer for his Treo 600 and it worked.
