Check dmesg to see if it shows up.

Then search for software, I've tried webcam, camsource,
motion (but work with my tv card).

Nothing seems to work. I know my usbweb camera does
work since I pulled a hack off the web that directly
talked to the USB port and bypassed v4l.

Maybe your distro is better.

i have a Logitech Quickcam and the drivers from here do the trick. Might want to see if yours is compatible.
