yup, also, iBot is kind of old already, you better find some newer 
stuff, I've got a iSweet which is not really good, but it may be a good 
choice if you think 350,000 pixels will be enough.

I'm not promoting mac products but may be iSight is an option since its 
quality is kind of ok (a bit better than iSweet). But I don't know if 
you can use it on WinXP.
