Easy Webcam setup

Author: JT Smith

"The aim of this document is to help you have a working webcam in just a few hours. This ... involves re-compiling your kernel. This isn't nearly as hard as it sounds. If you're kind of uncomfortable with the idea yet, read either the Kernel Compiling NHF or the Kernel-HOWTO. In my case I was forced to use the 2.2.17 backport, due to the fact that 2.4.0-test9 broke a lot of USB serial stuff (I need *working* USB for my Handspring Visor to sync via USB in Linux.) and at the time of this writing namesys hadn't released a patch for ReiserFS for 2.4.0-test10."
