I think you will need to have a look on somewhere like to see if it is supported. Current WebCam support doesn't look too great IIRC, my USB Logitech QuikCam VC isn't support at the moment.

If it is supported then you may need to recompile your kernel to add the code of it. For details of this have a look at and search the forum for other peoples questions about kernel compilation.

sorry that I couldn't give a 'nice' answer!
