Thank you for all the help. I now have a solution.
The HP camera people told me they do NOT intend to support linux, unlike HP printers, so I bought a NIKON L-10 for $110 via internet. It's a wonderful camera for such a price.
I haven't made it talk to Gphoto or FLphoto, but it runs fine under Digikam in PTP mode. I used configure/autodetect to set up the interface
NIKON L-10 with Mandrake 10.1
Attach USB connector
Start Digikam (mine is ver 0.6.2)
Turn on Nikon L-10 in "scene" mode
Camera: PTP mode
Select pix & download by pressing OK on camera
effective xfr speed abt 1 MBd
Turn off camera and pull USB conn.
