Hi,
Here are a few links you can check out to get your webcam working:
http://qce-ga.sourceforge.net/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/qce-ga/
http://www.ee.oulu.fi/~tuukkat/quickcam/quickcam.html
http://www.linux.com/howtos/Webcam-HOWTO/index.shtml
http://www.ee.oulu.fi/~tuukkat/quickcam/FAQ

FWIW, I used the first (two) link to get mine working...

HTH, Myles

PS: Considering the popularity of these webcams I wonder if they might be
included as loadable modules in some future version of Fedora?
