Gnome & Webcam

I have Opensuse 11.2 with gnome. In order to have skype work properly with my webcam I had to pre-load the drivers. since this computer is for a person who knows nothing about computers, I have skype loading automatically. How do can I do for the workaround to work automatically every time I turn on the PC? I tried changing the command in the menu settings in gnome, but that command does not work.
