Fine - removed. It was just an attempt to beak up the page and give it 
some structure. The important thing is the info that it works :)

I didn't envisage turning it into a mini review of each cam - there's 
already plenty of those on youtube etc. What's missing is purely a list 
of cams that *will* work under CentOS, plus any relevant details for 
getting it working.

I hope you'll add your Philips webcam to the list when you get a chance ;)
