Possible solution not tested:

1. Export your Palm Desktop datebook in .dba format.
2. Import this file into your Yahoo! calendar.
3. Export your Yahoo! calendar in .csv format.
4. Import this file into your Outlook calendar.

I don't have a dba file to experiment with anymore, but here is another idea.

The .dba Palm file is really a .mdb Jet Database, take a copy of your file and change the extension to .mdb.
Then use this tool to extract to csv format:

Download the 0.5 release and attempt to open your .mdb file

Let me know?
