I believe thats the driver for the philips camera, I don't believe it 
will work with the quickcam.

Oops, I just checked out the site, they do list a couple of quickcam 
models.  I guess it depends on the model.  Thanks for the pointer, I'll 
check it out to see if it works better for my camera. :)

One other useful thing, run:

xwatv -hwscan

It will list the v4l devices it sees.

I just tried the pwc driver, it doesn't work with my camera.  With the 
mod_quickcam driver, xwatv -hwscan lists:
