    This app (here ) provides support for a lot of webcams, they do list two types of creative vista webcams that "should work" so it is worth a try (you can always remove the drivers if you have no success). Good luck!

    According to the aMSN FAQ, if you have a PPC computer (which your ibook obviously is) then webcamming won't work if both users have their firewalls on (although you might be able to get away with just diasabling your firewall if the other person is not on a computer with a PPC processor, ie, someone with an intel mac, or on windows).

    It is possible that there is a workaround for this and the FAQ hasn't been updated, so it might be worth making a post on the aMSN forum here. If you do make a post, then ask if you can keep the firewall on but just allow certain ports to be freed up, this is because in the firewall prefs you can allow certain TCP and UDP port ranges, someone might know what to type in there. This way you don't have to totally disable your firewall.

    Good luck again!
