Cool Any good webcams that work with Linux?

I'm looking for a good webcam... preferably one that works with firewire so i can hook up my Sony DV camcorder and stream motion jpeg or something similar.

I'm currently on OS X using "evocam" Which will stream motion jpeg with the help of a JAVA applet.
