The Planet CCRMA kernel has the Video For Linux stuff enabled as modules
(same in the RedHat kernel). This is the pertinent section of the kernel
configuration file:

# Video For Linux

# Video Adapters
[more drivers ommited]

But maybe the problem is USB? (although there are some USB webcams
included in the kernel as modules). What are your references? Maybe you
need a different version of Video for linux? Send us some URL's...
