I've just purchased a webcam and appears to be installed correctly (it seems to work fine).  Now I understand I can use MS Netmeeting to have video calls with friends who also have webcams.  My questions is, how do I do this? How do I connect to another person and how do they connect to me so we can see each other.  I've never used Netmeeting I'm a total beginner when it comes to webcam (video calls).  I hope this isn't to complicated of a question.  Thanks for any help you can give.

I'm at the same stage as you.  And it seems that it helps to also have installed MSN messenger service, to allow pre-video text communication, and to know when the party you desire to call is indeed "on-line"

See my recent questions and answers on this very subject.
