using video4linux with a hauppauge 250 and a webcam


I'm trying to setup a webcam on my linux box (FC4),
I already have a hauppauge 250/mythtv setup running.

I want to be able to use both devices
/dev/video and /dev/video0 shows my tvcard.

How can I get to see the webcam too?
As far as I can see the quickcam driver has compiled and insmod has work.

lsmod (partial)
Module Size Used by
quickcam 74660 0
videodev 9665 2 quickcam,ivtv

dmesg (partial)
usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usbcore: registered new driver quickcam


OK, a nights sleep has made the difference. I've now found (with a search I'm sure I tried last night)
which seems to answer my question.
