I downloaded a binary package of Funambol, and installed it in /opt. The
binary package is self-contained, so I start funambol
with /opt/Funambol/bin/funambol start and stop it
with /opt/Funambol/bin/funambol stop. I think that funambol's default
mode is to learn about its users automatically as they log in for the
first time. (There must be a way to turn that off if it poses a security
risk, but I don't know what that is.)

If you're using Debian the virtuoso-vad-syncml packages is another
SyncML server. I haven't used it myself, so I can't say anything about
