Mixing B&W with Color

I want to videoconference with 2 machines (PC's), one with a B&W Quickcam
and one which will soon have a color Quickcam. I want to use a direct
connection (no ref). Obviously I will need WP's Enhanced CU on the machine
with the color Quickcam. Will the other machine (now with regular CU) be able
to "see" a B&W image from the machine with the color Quickcam? If not, suppose
I get WP's enhanced CU for both machines (color transmission one way, B&W
the other...)? This may be a problem anyway, as the machine with the B&W
Quickcam is a '386, and I gather WP's enhanced CU requires a '486 or
better. Any help appreciated.
