I use the Logitech "QuickCam Communicate STX" (it's actually for work, but I plugged it into my Ubuntu desktop and it Just Worked(tm)...
Most of the Logitech's basic hardware should work. I don't think there's controls for things like motorized pan and tilt, but for basic web-camer-y goodness their models should be fine.
Good luck with your search for a webcam - you might want to check out linuxcompatible.org, or do specific searches on various online store sites. I found this list of Linux-compatible devices on Amazon.
I've used Linux for a while now (since 1995), and finding hardware used to be a real pill. Nowadays, it's much better than it was...
Welcome aboard - keep us posted on how things go!
