The other issue was trying to get my hands on the webcam application to control the webcam setting. This CD will not ship with Ubuntu version and can be a little tricky to find.

You might want to consider the smallest RAM config and upgrade to 2GB for XP

Where did you find the webcam application? I've been searching for it and have had no luck.
