Help with Spca50x for SuSE 8.2

ok Ive been trying to get my Intel Easy PC Camara to work for sometime now. Im a toal newb to the linux scene. I recently got SuSE 8.2, and everything seems to be ok, but my webcam doesnt want to work. I opened it up and found that it had a spca508 chipset. So I dl the src from soundforge, and tried to compile it. doesnt work. I sl the src kernel from SuSE and installed it, but then what. I did a make cloneconfig and then a make dep. Was that all? I then tried to recompile the module again and get this with I try to insmod
