Motion Detection System for Linux???

Hello all.....I have been asked to look into a motion detection system that would run on a Linux box, and I was wondering if anyone had done something like this before, and what their suggestions were, if any would be. I'd be running it on Fedora Core 1. I'd just need something fairly basic at about 6-10 frames / minute.....and info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I wired a PIR motion sensor to a pin on my parallel port. 12 to power the sensor. It has a pull to ground output, parallel port inputs have pull up resistors so it's 1 normally and 0 when the sensor picks up somthing. I wrote a few lines of C that run as root so it can just read the io address directly.

You can get video capture boards that work in linux. No idea about motion detection software.
