Webcam madness!!

Hi all, I have a d-link webcam that is using the ov519 senser. I downloaded the ov51x driver for it and the best I can get is a very blurry image with it. Has anyone got this camera to work?
Suse 9.2
D-link c-300
getjpeg is the image capture program

Thanks for any help

Don't know that it will help at all, but there's a driver there, and more information.
