Default Webcam connecting...

Hi guys and girls.

I was jus' wondering if i could borrow some of your help please in connecting my a webcam.

The thing is i'm new to this, and i want to connect it so i can see my friends on msn. it's my mums and dads camera which is unused on their windows 98 pc, and i have xp. I'm going to take it out of theirs and plug it in to the front of my pc in the usb slot.

Where do i go from there after i have put the camera in the usb port. As i really don't know because i'm a newbie with cams lol.
How do i install it, can i install it without a cd by doing something in control panel or something similar??

Anyhow, i'd very much appreciate any of your help.

Thanks.

Ash

P.s I'm off to bed now, as it's 2:50 am in england, so if americans or other countries post a reply to this, it may be a few hours until i reply lol, thanks again!

Default usb drivers...

Install the usb drivers and you're good to go. You can get them from the webcam maker's web site if you don't have the cd. Drivers in first then plug in the cam.
