What's a good current usb webcam that is supported by the 2.6.x series 

Preferably 300k+ pixels, colour, and microphone...

(OK, so I've upgraded some of the family onto broadband... :-) )

Are there any webcams that offer 1024x768?

There's the lists at:
but it looks like only the old stuff is on there... And a certain large 
manufacturer has replied:

"We regret to inform you that xxx Computer Products are generally 
developed for use with Windows® operating systems only,  and therefore 
no drivers or installation instructions for Linux operating systems are 
provided. Nor is in fact the use of our products with Linux in any way 

What can someone recommend please?
And what's the image quality like?
