I want to look out my home window ( at my garden ) while I am at work.  

My home computer is Suse 10 and it is a web server ( apache ).

What camera works easly and what is the other  information I need to do this.   This is just for fun so I need to be able to "see" however major expense is not needed :)

I've not really used a webcam on a linux system before.
