I recently bought a N80 too, and didn't manage to have it working with
the CA-53 cable. I suggest you to use bluetooth, but can't promise you
it's gonna be successful.

I have tried to build only the driver as a module, to load it, and to
see if plugging the phone gives an entry in dmesg output: It doesn't, so
I conclude it's not recognized as a DK-2 cable. But I recently saw
(using windows) that my cable was electrically not very reliable ...

I haven't had the time to do it myself. Feel free to try. By the way,
please note that you and I might be the first to talk on this list about
connecting a N80 to Gnokii.
