Simple Linux Webcam

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 :)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
