Michael, as I mentioned other day, I tryed with the Connectix folks to get
the Cam running on my 520 with no success. They said they had the same
problem with other people. They said they don't have a solution yet, and
the common cause of the problem was the presence of an internal modem. They
said that they will look into it, but gave me no specific date.
