Great information, if I just knew what it meant. ;)  I have put it at  
the beginning of the following link to keep this email from becoming  
impossible to read.   

Thanks, Hans, you have given me hope.  If this works it will be the  
first webcam that will have ever worked for me.  The closest thing was  
a Hauppauge tv card with a camera back in 1998 or so.


P.S. If it is preferable, I can add the results to email rather than the web.
