Hmm, I wonder if the kernel is the issue.  I found it in:

Yeah, that's typical output if the device is not loaded.  Here's my 
output from lsusb:

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0451:2046 Texas Instruments, Inc. TUSB2046 Hub
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 046d:0870 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Express
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 056a:0011 Wacom Co., Ltd Graphire 2
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 03f0:0401 Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 5200c
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

When I first got this camera, I downloaded the driver from a sight that 
was developing it.  There is a list for the driver on sourceforge, you 
might check it out.
