Driver for Philips SPC 900NC Webcam?

Have got Skype running in 64bit SUSE 11.2 but whenever my Philips SPC 900NC Webcam starts Skype crashes. Do I need a driver for the webcam or is it something else causing the problem.
Suggestions gratefully received

After a further trawl through old postings I was able to test the webcam in Kopete and it worked perfectly so it would appear that it is a problem of Skype running in 64bit.
Any other suggestions?

Yes I think so. Followed the various instructions for downloading the needed 32bit files before loading Skype. Skype appears to be working O.K. apart from crashing whenever the webcam tries to operate.
