Hello list,

I'll require a webcam in the next few days to do a presentation where 
there's no bttv grabber board available - but it neets to be relatively 
cheap and easy to run from something like knoppix or dynabolic ( since 
the university won't allow me to compile programs or load kernel drivers 
)t and all they have to offer next is windows based or macintosh( no 
experience with those and pdp on that platform )
any recommendations here? I looked for the notebook ones but the're not 
really cheap and too new to be running of a stock kernel :(
