Question Scanner and Webcam support


I just bought a new HP ScanJet 3500c scanner and a Logitec QuickCam Messenger webcam, and niether work. It auto-detected the scanner and left a shortcut to Kooka on my desktop, but it doesn't scan. How do find support for my scanner, and what prog do I use for my webcam?

?? I have no clue what most of that is. Is there somewhere I can get rpms for progs that will run either device?

The system knows a scanner is there, it put a shortcut to Kooka on my desktop, it just doesn't work. Maybe I just don't know how to use kooka, but after reading the documentation, i think I'm doing it right, it just doesn't support my scanner. (HP ScanJet 3570c)
