HP DV6000 series

Hi all,
I need help please...
I'm currently using windows XP and would like very ,uch to move to Linux- i've tried it in my Laptom already, with Ubuntu 8.04 but i switched back to Windows due to hardware difficulty and lack of time to handle it...
Now i can deal with my Laptop and want to install OpenSuse 11.0 .
The help i need from you guys, is to help me find the appropriate drivers for my machine- including webcam which i couldn't operate last time..

The laptop model is: HP DV6263ea.
Thank you!
