Driver for the Chicony DC-5132; HP Web Camera?

Hello this is Josh, I am having trouble using my new HP Web-Cam I bought from at a local Wall-Mart, All I did was just hook it up to my computer and it will not work under my operating system which is OpenSUSE 11.1. I tried finding if it detected it by looking at the hardware information and I did not see it listed.

Is there a driver for it for Linux?

And how do you install it?

I am a bit of a newbie to Linux.
I am learning somewhat quickly.

Hi Joshua,
I resently was able to make my hp-webcam work with the help of one of the community member through the link he provided.
Here is the thread I started regarding my webcam problem.HP 2-megapixel webcam on opensuse 11.1 - openSUSE Forums
Try to follow the links given and look if your webcam is supported.
There are relevant commands in this thread on my post that you can use in finding out about your webcam. If you will be able to find if your webcam is supported and you come to the point of building or installing the driver and have some questions please post and I will try to guide you if I seem to know the solution. This is the only assistance I can do for now.
