Using digital camera as webcam

Well, it'd be nice to use my digital camera as a webcam under linux(I can do it under windows). The camera is a Nova DC-2L (finding info for it is a bitch). Well I'm wondering on how to get it working as a webcam under linux..

Under windows all I gotta do is set the cam to webcam mode on the camera then plug it in, and it's good to go from there..

Well I dunno what driver the camera uses as a webcam so I guessed qc-usb as it seemed to be the only one listed on the wiki page

sorta preEDIT: Ok as I was about to post the device info I seen that Zoran is what it came up as, so I looked it up and the module for it is zr36067, but when I try to modprobe it I get:
FATAL: Error inserting zr36067 (/lib/modules/2.6.9-ARCH/kernel/drivers/media/video/zr36067.ko): No such device
any ideas?

proc entry:

Re: Using digital camera as webcam

First of all, use udev. devfs is mostly useless if you want to use USB.

in udev rules, you need something like:
KERNEL="sda*" SYMLINK="camera%n"
KERNEL="video[0-9]" SYMLINK ="video%n"

I dont like a zillion groups, so I change my permissions,
#camera devices

The problem with devfs prevented me from using my camera as a webcam and mounted storage device without restarting devfs and fiddling with the mounting of usbfs or whatever it was called.

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

should tell you what is being seen on the bus.
